I would really like to see the German "Neues Leben" bible offered in Accordance.

Even though I converted an e-text of this Bible and imported it, I would really appreciate getting a copy of Neues Leben Bibel made by Accordance for Accordance.


It was a huge effort that cost me free time over a couple of months to get the camel (NLB) through the eye of the needle (Accordance Bible Import feature) and the quirky, tedious nature of importing such a Bible has caused a lot of confusion between me and others who use the paper version:

  • OT verse numbering was lost, since only one numbering system was allowed for importing ("KJV"),
  • poetry format was lost, since it wasn't possible (so far as I knew) to retain it,
  • paragraph titles all had to be removed,
  • note numbers and notes had to be removed, and
  • copy as citation uses English book names. :(

There are two other folks in my community who are using Accordance and the (paper) Neues Leben Bibel and I wouldn't wish such an import on them.


Even if the Bible import has been improved, and I don't know that it has, I don't think I will go through such an experience ever again. :(


When I was obliged to use the Elberfelder recently, it occurred to me how nice, clean and accurate it can be to use the Accordance-made version, especially with the different numbering system.


It would also be great to get the Hoffnung fuer Alle if that were possible.
