Would it be possible to negotiate a deal with David Bauscher to include his translation of the Peshitta NT in Accordance?  I understand that, as an Aramaic primacist, his translation is controversial but I think that makes it more valuable.  As long as the original Aramaic text and an alternative translation (such as Murdock's) are available, having an Aramaic primacist translation can do no harm and may shed light on certain difficult passages in the New Testament.  Besides, intellectual honesty would argue for giving each side of a controversy its best advocate.  Just as a Greek primacist wouldn't want all his Greek translations to be made by Aramaic primacists, neither should all the Aramaic translations be made by Greek primacists.  

 

Besides, Murdock's translation is a little old in the tooth....

Last week I found out, that it gives also a Spanish Translation of the Peshitta.

ATTENTION: My bug reports are all with the GERMAN INTERFACE and with the EUROPEAN NOTATION! It can be the English interface has no bug, which I describe.
