How do I quickly translate GNT-TRS to English text?
Posted 10 March 2006 - 10:58 PM
I am using the GNT-TRS and use the copy paste to put the original text into a word processor. My question is this - How can I quickly and simply transfer (export) the original Greek into English words without having to translate and type the English words myself. I want to keep the original order of words, otherwise I would just quote a present day translation.
Here is an example: 1 John 4:8b GNT-TRS "Theos agapeś estin" Now I have to manually lookup; triple click each word, look it up in the dictionary, after all of that type the English word in my document.
Currently I set the Preferences in the Greek export to English or transliteration and it gives me English words (that make no sense unless you read Greek) that I then have to manaully translate to their English words that I understand. I would like to cut this painful step out and not have to manually translate the Greek English words into meaningful English words.
I use a Greek (book form) lexicon and it has the original Greek language with the English words right under them. I am looking for something like this.
Can anyone help me out, perhaps recommend a study supplement?
Thanks in advance!

Ἰδὼν ὁράω to see
δὲ δέ but, and, now
τοὺς ὁ, ἡ, τό the, who, which
ὄχλους ὄχλος crowd; army; people
ἀνέβη ἀναβαίνω to go up, rise up, advance
εἰς εἰς one
τὸ ὁ, ἡ, τό the, who, which
ὄρος ὄρος mountain, high hill
There is no other way to get Accordance to translate the text. It just is not clever enough.

I have tried everything I can think of, the funny thing is I'm sure it's a simple fix!
PS It seems that I am missing the Greek words in the Gloss folder. Where might I find these? My gloss folder is empty. I am a standard level user and I purchased the GNT-TRS. Hope this helps.
