Free program for browsing Bible translations
Any computer with a Windows operating system (XP till 10) and the .NET Framework 3.5/4 environment (available by default since Windows 7 – in case of an older system you need to install it from the developer's website). To download new translations you need an Internet connection. Installing and running the program does not require administrator rights.
This is not an easy question, because on the one hand we are talking about "God's word" which we should preach to the whole world. On the other hand, gathering a group of experienced translators and the time devoted to preparing a high quality text are costly, and as the Bible says: "The laborer is worthy of his reward" [1 Timothy 5:18]. For this reason, I have decided to divide the translations into authorized ones (available legally, based on the author's assent or due to the expiration of copyright), and unauthorized ones, which have not been licensed by their publishers. During the work on the program I will attempt to obtain the assent to fully authorized use of these texts. Until that time I have decided to pass the moral question on to the users, who can decide for themselves if they want to install these translations on their computers (no translations are automatically bundled with the program).
The repository currently contains 248 translations (see the full list).

I support and develop this program using my own means, because I'm eager to learn the word of God – just like you :-) If you can make a small donation for the maintenance of the program or for one of the causes I collect for, I'll be very grateful.
