I am interested in French Bibles, Logos  don't do a lot of French Bibles. There is only one you can download, however there  are a few more on the Original Languages. However I don't want to buy that.


1) What are the differences between the different versions and how do they compare with English versions.

Louis Segond,  are there different revisions of this Bible?

La Bible de Jérusalem

Bible en français courant

You might want to look at the following thread: Logos 4 and French Bibles

There have been different revision of the Louis second Bible:

The original (1910) uses rather archaic language

The 1978 revision (Colombe) is the most widely used in many french speaking countries.

The Nouvelle Bible Segond (NBS) went the "critical" route with its notes and many including myself do not like what they have done in updating the language. 

all the version above adopt a rather "literal" translation

the "Bible en Francais Courant" is comparable to the NIV in its use of dynamic equivalency, it is one of the easiest translations for someone that is still learning French.
