Hi there,

I'm an American missionary serving in Ukraine, and I'd like to know if there's anything I can do to help make a full translation of the Ukraine Bible available on Logos. The most widely accepted and used version here in Ukraine is the Ivan Ohienko translation which is freely available online (http://bibleonline.ru/bible/ukr/ | http://www.ukrainian-bible.co.uk/) and in other Bible software (e-Sword, YouVersion). Another good translation in Ukrainian is that of Kulisha (also available on YouVersion).

I am aware that there is a version of the Ukrainian NT from WBTC available on Logos, but I cannot use this due to the fact that it is a VERY simplified/modernized version of the text. Not really a translation but more like a paraphrase. Most Christians I know would not accept it as actual Scripture.

I would love to see the Ohienko and/or Kulisha translations in the Logos library. Is there a procedure for submitting material to Logos? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Joshua

Joshua, is "Ivan Ohienko translation"  in the public domain ie not in copyright?

sadly freely avaiable doesnt mean its free for us to make a bible of, but with Personal Books, if its out of copyright then someone may be willingh to assist you make it

Never Deprive Anyone of Hope.. It Might Be ALL They Have

Yes, so far as I understand the Ivan Ohienko translation is in the public domain. It is already in use with many other Bible software makers, notably YouVersion.com. See this link for more info -->http://www.youversion.com/versions/ubio

I second this request. Any ETA on this project? Many would benefit.

Send an email to : suggest@logos.com  These requests do get to the product managers who occupy these kind of requests, however often the answer is no simply for business reasons. Just because a Bible is freely available online and popular, that doesn't mean it is out copyright (in fact this version according to wikipedia was published in 1958). 

Faithlife would need to get a contract from the publisher and put the ressource up for pre-pub in order to justify the cost of putting it into the Logos format.
