Hi

How do I create my own translation of the Bible in Logos?

And how can I see it in Text Comparison?

Thanks

 

P.A.

Use Microsoft Word and tag it with PB tags, then build it as a Bible PB in Logos4

EDIT:

Example Bible PB docx: 1440.Bible PB example.docx

You can click on any image below to view a larger view of it in your browser

Below is a screenshot of the above Word docx example.

 

Below is a screenshot of the PB after it is built in Logos4
Notice that the PB is set to type Bible
Also notice that to the right of the new PB is the Logos4 Text Comparison and in it you see our new PB.

Hey I manage to do it after several attempts. The only snag I had was I forgot to change resource type from monograph (Default) to Bible


Text Comparison - John 1:11

‎PA BIBLE 1 | ‎Jn 1:11 He entered his own realm, and his own would not receive him.


‎ESV | ‎Jn 1:11 He °came to his own, °and his own °people did not receive him.  28% difference


‎RSV | ‎Jn 1:11 He °came to his own °home, and his own °people received him not.°  44% difference

Your screen shots were great help

Thanks

This is very helpful, but I've got one problem. I am not using topical headings, so I am not sure where to put {{field-on:Heading}}. The problem is that the Table of Contents does not show the book names, only the chapters.

What do I put before and after the Bible book names?

Thank you for your help!

The TOC is not built with tagging, but from the MS Word Heading styles. You'd format bible book names as Heading 1 and Chapters as Heading 2, then the TOC works.
