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 is costly, and as the Bible says: "The labourer is worthy of his reward" [1 Timothy 5:18]. For this reason I have decided to divide the translations into authorised ones (available legally based on the author's assent or due to expiration of copyright), and unauthorised ones, which have not been verified by their publisher. During the work on the program I will attempt to obtain the assent to fully authorised use of these texts. Until that time I have decided to shift the moral question to the users, who can decide for themselves if they want to install these translations on their computer (no translations are automatically bundled with the program).
The repository currently contains 190 translations (see the full list).
If you've found a mistake in the program or have an idea for an improvement, write to me. You can do it through the contact form. 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.
