Well, I said I will not suggest any new things, after I ordered NICOT/NICNT commentaries, but... I just have to do it, I have to put here the request of the Czech modern translations. Logos, go international! English is nice language (I really like it) but it is not the only one. (Yes, I know you have a few other languages). This year is a year of Bible in our country. We have got 3 new translations, after all the years of Nazism, Communism etc. It is a very special time for our nation. Recently almost all newspapers wrote about the Bible. It is amazing. We got Bible, 21st Century Translation, good for giving away to unchurched people, in a few weeks we will have the Czech Study Translation, an excellent literal translation with tens of thousands of translation notes. By the end of the year we are going to have the Jerusalem Bible, the Catholic translation you know probably about.

The only thing that would make it even better, it would be to have those Bibles in Logos Smile

P.S. BibleWorks have had them even before they were competed. That is the reason most pastors just have no other option, they use BW. Let's give them the other option.

Can you tell us who has the rights to these translations so we can look into getting a license?

Thanks!

Thank you Bob for asking. Yes, I know both new translation teams. The most widely used translation so far is The Ecumenical Bible. It was translated by a large committee of Bible scholars and is accepted by all denominations, also by Catholics. It is with or without the Deuterocanonical books. 1024x768 Normal 0 21 false false false CS X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 The last revision of the translation is from 2001. I spoke with their manager and he said they would be very happy to get their Bible into Logos. Here is his contact: Mr. Milan Hlouch hlouch-at-dumbible.cz  phone +420 284 693 918 and their web site (only in Czech however)is www.dumbible.cz

Bible, 21st Century Translation is a new translation in a regular language of unchurched people. It's popularity is really growing very much since it was published a few month ago. All media have been speaking about it. Their web site is here (it is in English) www.bible21.cz

The Czech Study Translation is the one pastors are really anticipating and eager to have. It is going to be published as a whole Bible in a few weeks from now. Their NT has been in use for about 10 years already. It is excellent. I spoke with their manager also and they are interested in publishing their Bible in Logos. He said their priority are Bible Works and some other Czech programs, but it is understandible. Bible Works has their NT already. Here is their web site (it is in English) http://www.biblecsp.cz/aj_index.html  If you have just one Bible in Logos, I think this one should be it. It is best suited for study in Logos with all those translation notes. The best would be to have all of them Smile

I believe that would bring many Czech pastors, Bible school students and many other people to a decision to buy Logos. It would be great. Thank you so much for all you are doing with Logos. I really appreciate it. You have the best and that's why we need to have it in Czech, which is probably the most atheistic nation in Europe.

God bless you and thank you

I am sorry. Somehow I got wrong format for the previous post. I copied some text into the post and it made that change. I apologize for it. I hope you can read it.

God bless you

Yes, I was looking at some statistics on the internet (I think it was a government website, but it was quite some time ago) and was amazed at the number in the Czech Republic who list themselves as atheists.  I was interested since one side of my family came from there in 1903.

I would very much like to join my voice to Bohuslav's.  I worked in the Czech Republic for 16 years as a minister, and one of the things I really missed in Logos was the ability to use some of the other Czech Bibles (beyond the Kralicka, which is in Logos).

I purchased a Logos base package for one of the members of the church I left behind, since he was the only one who would have found the English resources to be of use (the other members have limited English abilities).  It would be wonderful if he could have all the Czech Bible translations that Bohuslav mentioned purchased as add-ons in his package.

Even though I'm no longer active IN the Czech Republic, I still study with people over there (Skype is wonderful! Smile), and would welcome having these translations in my library as well, for our regular Bible studies.

Well now, I would have to therefore put in a plug for the Polish Bible as I am in a similar situation, having been in Poland 12 years.

I would be very happy to see some Polish translations in Logos. I preach in Polish sometimes (our city is right on the border with Poland) and I use Warsaw Translation or Biblia Tysiaclecia (Catholic translation). Yes, it would be great.

Have a great day

Well, what is the progress with the Czech Bibles? I heardf last week from the president of the Board of Trustees of the Czech Bible Society, that they are really interested with publishing the Ecumenical Bible in Logos. Sounds promising. Also the director of the Czech Study Translation project said they would be very happy to have CST Bible in Logos. Can I help you Logos to make it happen?

Another 2 month and I haven't heard from Logos about the Czech Bibles. Is there any progress. Is there any negotiations? Is there anything I can do for making it happen? I believe it would be a great gift to our secular nation if our pastors can have their Bible in the best Bible software. I hope the principle from the Luk 18:5 and Luk 11:8 will work in this case also Geeked

P.S. By the way, why RefTagger is not working on these forums? I would expect it on the Logos forum to work. Just an idea.

I too would love to see the Czech Study Translation in Logos - it is an EXCELLENT translation very true to its title. Very good for study and with rich apparatus. I will speak with the director of the team and ask how far they are in database preparations.

Zdravim Tesin! Poslete mi sms, at se zkontaktujeme 773519335.

Wow, I just not noticed there are new posts in this Czech Bibles thread (this forum software is not easy on me). Hey guys, that's great news. I spoke and wrote with people from both Czech Bible Society for the Ecumenical Bible and pastor Fridrich, who is a chairman of the board assured me they are really interested in having EB in Logos. People from Czech Study Translation, my number one priority for Logos, said they will work on that. Since then I did not hear from them. It is great to hear they work on that. Czech Study Translation is best suited for Logos. It is our Czech NET Bible, may be better :-). I spoke with many pastors and all of them would consider buying Logos only if there is a Czech modern Translations in it.

Zdravím Tě bratře Václave. Je skvělé vidět češtinu na Logosu! Logos používám od roku 1996. Mám Platinum plus mnoho individuálních sérii (NICOT/NICNT). Papírové knihy a hlavně komentáře už téměř vůbec nekupuji. Logos 4 je náročný na hardware, ale je skvělý. Jen ty české Bible. Všechny Smile Pokud máš přímý kontakt na "Decision Makers" v ČSP, velmi je povzbuď k práci na uvedení tohoto skvělého překladu do Logosu. Díky za mobil. Ozvu se.

Přeju požehnaný den.

Hi Bohuslav!

I add my "Amen" to your request for a Czech Bible...! When I was a missionary to France back in the 90's I was limited to the OnlineBible for some time because it was the only software package that had a French translation. Even now I believe Logos has only the older Louis Segond version and not any of the newer translations while the OnlineBible has multiple French language options. Now that I am back in the States it is no longer such an issue, but I really, really understand your frustration.

Greetings to Felicie, by the way!

Blessings!

Hi Mark. It is great to meet you here on Logos forums. As you see I try to get Logos converted to some more languages. This year has been very special for us. We got 3 new translations (as you can see above). It has truly been a "Year of the Bible". We believe it will bring a new dynamics into the spiritual atmosphere of our country. Just one thing is missing and that is to have that Bibles in Logos (some of them are already in some freeware Bibles and Bible Works).

How is you Logos doing? Have you upgraded to Logos 4 already? Do you like it?

Please greet Teresa and Family. We miss you here in Europe. God bless you.

You would not believe guys, but our newspapers write a lot these days about Bible being a best-seller of the year and of the Christmas here in the Czech Republic, the most atheistic country of Europe. As I said, 2009 has truly been "The Year of the Bible" here. The catholic "Jerusalem Bible" has just been released in the Czech language few days ago. It is the 3rd new translation in just one year. And you know what will come now:  we need all of them in Logos, please. That would be a great start of the new year, "the year of the electronic Bible" Smile

Merry Christmas Logos Wink

Czech Study Translation has just been published in the free DAVAR 3 Bible Software with all the notes and cross references. So the text is tagged and prepared already to get it to Logos. When we are going to see it happen? I like DAVAR but Logos would be so much better.

Tohle jsem dostal od Michala Klesnila:

"...tak se pracuje na BW a Logosu. Nejdál je export do BW, tam už by to měla být opravdu otázka týdnů."

Ale měl trochu zastaralé informace, sám o Davaru nevěděl, že už je hotový, takže to možná znamená i že by to mohlo být dřív ;-)

This is in Czech - update about Czech Study Translation preparations.
