Hi Logos staff

Can you please make Indonesian Bibles available?

250 million people speak Indonesian. It is the 4th most populous nation in the world.

I have the Indonesian Bibles for Logos on the desktop but they are not available on mobile. Can you please please please make them available on mobile?

Hi Jason,

Care to share where did you get your Indonesian Bible from? I've been looking for one.

Hi Mike

It was available on Indonesian Bible society years ago in the Libronix days.

I got it then but it is not available now. It works on desktop but not on mobile apps. I haven't seen it anywhere else.

I hope Logos gets licensing for it so we can use it on mobile apps.

Wow, that is very nice.

I hope Logos can make a second deal with the Indonesian Bible Society.

Because I believe the regular bible app on iOS and Android ( has it in there for free!

Is there someone in Logos that we can talk to so this would happen?

Yes. Many other apps and online sites have the Indonesian Bibles for free - as you said, youversion Bible is free, as is

Olivetree charges $16. I would be very happy to pay for it on Logos.

As Mike said, is there anyone from Logos who can comment?

I sent an email to the other day

Hi Logos staff

Could you please consider making Indonesian Bibles available (for mobile)? I read this from Bob Pritchett in response to a question about translations. "The biggest issue is usually securing files and permission from the copyright holder, not the cost of production. If you email with the text and the contact info for the publisher, we can look into it."   In the past Logos had Indonesian translations, i.e. I have the Indonesian Bibles (purchased from the Indonesian Bible society - Logos 3) on desktop but not on mobile.    Contact details for the Indonesian Bible Society. See below.   I am an Australian teaching at a Bible college in Indonesia, 7 years, if you need help in translating emails, I am happy to help.   Thank you for considering obtaining the licensing rights to Indonesian Bibles.   Jason

Wondering if there's update on this?

I agree. The longer we are waiting, the more urgent it becomes to have the Indonesian Bible "Terjemahan Baru" (TB) in the Logos version. Please take note of this suggestion thoughtfully.

Good news, friends! You don't need to wait more longer for Indonesian Bible on Logos, as I did before!

Assuming this Indonesian Bible "Terjemahan Baru" or "ITB" is free in public domain since it has been included in several online / Bible softwares/apps for many years,  I compiled this Indonesian Bible as Logos Personal Book. It will work as a normal Bible which is searchable, and indexed on the common English verse that it can work in parallel with other Logos Bibles and other books indexed on bible verses, such as commentaries. 

I made and ran some scripts to gather the texts and even build them on paragraph mode, instead of single verse paragraph. Having said that I am not responsible for any errors or mistakes in the contents. So, you need to verify them yourselves.  

You need to add the following docx file. Go to "Tools" Menu -> Utilities -> Personal Books. Set type as "Bible" and Language as "Indonesian". There are several resources on Logos Personal Book around the internet and Logos' website. 

If you have questions or need help, I am available. Blessings!
