Thanks Jan, I will check it out. FYI, the specific issue here turns out to be an error in tagging for the resources in question. Logos is now on it and it should be fixed in the Dec 24 release. https://community.logos.com/forums/p/176551/1020107.aspx#1020107

J.R. Miller:
Kyle has already replied to my bug report and believes the fix should be fairly straight forward. Thanks for helping track down the error in the Logos tagging MJ. Good to see after all these years you are still on it.

As you now know, the MTG has been fixed:

MTG now gives hits for five of the seven German words in Gen 1:1, missing out on "am" and on "schuf". 

For those interested in a more broad German/English and English/German dictionary, CP has one waiting for bids: https://www.logos.com/product/55071/heaths-german-and-english-dictionary I'm pretty certain that "am" or even the phrase "am Anfang" (= "in the beginning") will be covered there.

But: German is a highly inflected language, such as Latin and Greek. So "schuf" is the past tense of "schaffen" (= "to create"), and a rather irregular past tense, too. To really be able to work with any word, one would need an analytical lexicon that gives all inflected forms - should be easy to produce based on a PD text such as Luther 1912

I know this is outside of Logos but until we have more German-English resources, you may find QTranslate helpful (if you don't know of it already).

You can set it so that it gives you instant translation of words or sentences when you select text with your mouse.

I had not heard of this tool Sadly, it only works on a Windows system. If anyone is aware of a Mac alternative, let me know.
