For our work as missionaries in Spanish cultures we find the New Living Translation version in spanish is very handy and desired. Our local book stores can't get enough as they are sold as soon as they come in. I think then that the Nueva Traducción Viviente (NTV) from Tyndale house would get more Spanish speakers using Accordance.

The NLT in German (Neues Leben: Die Bibel) would also be very interesting. :)

 

I bought the epub and imported it last year, but my attempt was still kind of messy and the import features were kind of limited.

I preach at a church that uses The Inclusive Bible and it would be immensely helpful for me not to have to manually retype from their small print.

Out of these, Moffatt would be really great to have:

The Bible
James Moffatt
Kregal Classics
April, 2004 (originally 1913, 1926)


Please SEE THIS recent LINK about Bible versions: https://www.christia...curate.7926578/
Moffatt version that I find I can focus on in the commuter traffic for more devotional reading - I also have the commentary set: https://www.christia...-bible.7618350/
And NPP and English translations and commentaries as well as as a bit about learning the original languages: https://www.christia...posts/72219172/
Commentaries: https://community.lo...795.aspx#830795
I think the best Accordance base is to buy HALOT (and BDAG) used, and then upgrade to Hebrew Pro. I have never bought a Collection with actual content but am holding on to the working configuration I have so far and am going to buy version 13 Hebrew Pro. /Apr. 6. 2018 - the very last day it was possible to get (if having contacted while the sale lasted) version 12 at 35% off + individual upgrade pricing:
acchebrewpro.without.versionnumber.jpg
I'm growing only my Accordance and print libraries (EDIT March 28. 2018: I now really have quit altogether placing new orders elsewhere) and printed matter nowadays only through the sites biblio and alibris. I also occasionally duplicate things, depending on price. I don't buy Collections/base-packages at all, to me an OK print library is a Collection/base-package and is bragging-rights, a mid-size Collection would not be!! Books copyrighted in the most recent Years (2011 and later) have to be truly exceptional for me to buy them - this is a strategy I'm going to stick to. I very rarely have to add any lexicons or Bible Dictionaries, I access them wherever, under Accordance I have bought HALOT and BDAG used. Otherwise I prefer BAGD actually which I have under L6.9. The best One-Volume Bible commentary is Oxford Bible Commentary.
NAB70 OT and L6 functionality including Chineze (which I don't speak/read) under spare account.
The Oxford Bible Commentary under other one pretty large current account that is the one I actually use. /Oct. 16. 2017 Edited Jan. 14. 2018. My current comparison March 20.-21. 2017 of two laptops: https://community.lo...520.aspx#891520
 ... and compared to the AMD laptop I used to have, things like speed and battery life
yesterday was 2 years since I returned from an archaeological trip to Turkey. /Apr 16. 2016 A bit of interest in Akkadian or Babylonian. /Apr. 2016
Besides my Macbook referenced below I have a few Windows, among the toughest I have are: 4GB (upgrading to 16 GB) W7 i3 3110 3rd gen Ivy Bridge (since it's W7 Professional and huge battery that actually can be gripped while carrying it open) - on which I have Accordance 10. | Until a Year ago I had: 8GB W10 AMD FX-7600P (since it's AMD:s best laptop CPU - I LOVE AMD) it had the slightly overkill AMD R7 270DX 2GB graphics, it was bought new on Oct. 30. (tomorrow from 
├ľrebro by train) 2015 marked down a bit as it was a returned item (not on a sale). My desktop has the excellent value for money G2030 CPU Ivy Bridge - currently I'm not using internet in it, it's the one on which I have Accordance 12 Starter installed. /March 28. 2018
For emailing, discussion- and dating- sites I have a very old laptop: Core 2 Extreme CPU, 4 GB RAM, Vista, SSD, old batteries and wanting to get one new battery, out of Bible Study softwares I'm only going to use Accordance (12 Starter) on it. /April 2018 installation of Windows:
 
Relevant and representative Facebook: https://www.facebook...100009160762403 (see also my Twitter).
Was on a vacation in Germany by car July 21. - Aug. 1. 2014 relaxing, evangelizing a little, while studying.
Going to teach myself the asq -programming language years later on. /June 16.-Oct 10. 2015-Apr. 16. 2016
This one is waiting for yet another motherboard change and I'm not sure it will get done IF everything continues the same: OS X 10.11 El Capitan on my 2007 Macbook Pro, with motherboard changed when it was 4 years old, disks changed as well: main drive 256 GB SSD, two new batteries. The 6 GB RAM and the two USB 3.0 ports for it (the latter through ExpressCard slot) just arrived this afternoon. /June 17. 2015

Moffat for the bagpipes, but how will Accordance handle the way he reorders passages of Scripture? I guess you wouldn't.

The Spanish / Espa├▒ol Bible offerings needs to be expanded to reflect the state of things in that area of the world.  I would very much like to see the following Bibles added to Accordance resources, not just as a package but for a la carte purchase:   La Nueva Traducci├│n Viviente (NTV), and La Biblia Hispanoamericano Traducci├│n Interconfesional (BHTI).  The former (which was requested on the Accordance forum several years ago by someone from Spain that noted its popularity) is offered by OliveTree in the iOS Bible+ app (which is how I currently have to use it since it is not available in Accordance, but which I would repurchase if Accordance offered it), and the latter is available on the Internet.  

 

At issue is that in much of the world, Spanish versions are needed for offline use where online use is problematic.
