Other Module Sources (Non-Repositories)

Institute for Scripture Research

The ISR has a self-extracting ZIP of The Scriptures that can be installed locally. The module is encoded such that it can be used in The SWORD Project for Windows only (and no other front-end, including other front-ends running on Windows). Since it is a copyrighted work being offered for free, I'm not sure if improvements would be updated on their site.

Bible Vietnam

The UBS Vietnam page has several Vietnamese-language modules, including the UBS version of the Viet module, which incorporates minor corrections to the 1926 text made in 1998 by the UBS along with headings and cross-references.

Modules in Brazilian Portuguese

ACF - Almeida Corrigida Fiel and NTLH - Nova Tradução na Linguagem de Hoje are available, hopefully other modules may follow. The modules focus on Linux, but they are supposed to work on Windows, Mac and Maemo platforms either. For ACF, copyright status is ok under Brazilian laws. For NTLH, copyright status not verified yet.

Polish Projekt Sword

Polish Projekt SWORD. Copyright status uncertain for some of the available Polish modules.

Institute for Bible Translation

The Institute for Bible Translation provides a number of translations in various Turkic languages of Central Asia. Currently these include Karakalpak, Turkmen (both Latin & Cyrillic), Uzbek (both Latin & Cyrillic), and Kyrgyz (both Arabic & Cyrillic). Alongside these translations are modules for English, Russian, Korean and the original Bible languages (Hebrew and Greek). Further modules are in preparation.

Paite e-Holy Bible

Paite is spoken in parts of North East India, Burma & Bangladesh. The Paite e-Holy Bible version 2 (2008-12-17) is available from Paite E-Holy Bible. It is possible to display the Paite module in other SWORD front end applications for Windows by copying the installed files to the SWORD path.

German Volxbibel

Volxbibel – A new German Bible translation in the language of the young generation. The translation is under the Creative Commons license, so non-commercial use and distribution is allowed. A SWORD module called VLX3 has been created by Jan Krohn, who has also built Go Bible applications for Java mobile phones. Contact Jan Krohn for further details.
