MySword Version::
1.X

This is an update of my T4T module at http://www.biblesupp...iffe-2008-2016/

Three major updates done:
1) All additional words are formatted in grey color and italic, so that it is easier to read which are original and which are implied words.  (you may see the screenshots here).  [Advanced users can change default color easily by modifying verse rule.
2) fixed the missing space between singular "you" and (sg)
3) "abbreviations of figures of speech" added to "about" > "module" information

Source: http://www.ebible.org/t4t/ (updated on 8th Feb 2016)

A Translation for Translators is a special translation of the Bible designed to help translators to know implicit information in the original languages that is often required it translating the Holy Bible to other languages. It presents alternate ways of translating that may be necessary in various languages. It also gives additional insight to people who are just interested in reading and studying the Bible in English. A Translator's Translation is a version of the same text, edited to be more smoothly readable for the latter group. Work is currently in progress on the Old Testament, and will be updated here periodically.

For noncommercial use, the following permission statement grants more freedom:
"... grant anyone nonexclusive permission to publish A Translation for Translators in print and electronic formats under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 license."

I found this module very useful for both personal study and translation. The N.T. is completed, but the sources states that "Note: The Old Testament in this translation is still being worked on, and is in draft form. Updates will be posted at eBible.org/t4t/." At the present moment, all books of O.T. is available, except the book of Haggai.

This module is created for MySword. You can also found this module in crosswire app, but I think I format the text better here. Thank you MySword team for developing such a great bible app. Hope you enjoy. [Advanced users may change default color easily by modifying verse rules.]

This is beyond bad from the very first word's translation. 

בראשׁית

is literally "in beginning," usually translated "in the beginning." Deibler "translates" it as "Long, long ago." It not only gives it a completely different meaning nowhere near justified by the original text, but it destroys the creation narrative, thereby destroying any need for Christ's sacrifice. It completely wipes out Biblical doctrine in one word, and starts off the Bible with a fairy tale air to it. This is being used by Bible translators? That is sickening!

I am confused by this. I went to the link above to look at the online version, which was at best absolutely careless. After submitting a review, which seems to have mysteriously disappeared at least for the moment, I looked at the screen grab above, and it shows something completely different. I have to convert the file to use it, if I am able. Hopefully it is not what http://ebible.org/t4t/ shows.

I do not understand your message.  The text was taken directly from the website http://ebible.org/t4t/ , without modification, with formatting only.

Regarding theology, please feedback to the original translator.  I only convert the file, as an option to compare with other translations.  I myself do not agree at some points of this translation.  Anyway, I had not found a perfect English translation yet.

Greetings

 

is there a version of this T4T for e-sword?

 

thanks in advance

Hi, I may do it later for e-Sword, but no guarantee.
