Hello, I have a bible on MSWord.docx and I was wondering if it can be imported into Accordance?

I also have it in PDF if that helps.

 

Note: it can be imported into another bible software and hopefully it can for Accordance.

Thanks,

Yes it is possible. But it has to adjust to the Accordance format. 

 

You can do it with Regex. This tool unfortunately works only the other way round.

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.

You can absolutely import your bible text. Have a read through our help file on this activity: http://accordancefil...20Bibles|_____1

 

That link is to the overview. Follow through to 'Preparing the Text' and 'Importing Your Bible' for the full process.

 

My personal workflow would be docx->html->txt. The first step is the trickiest, as html output from Word tends to be pretty ugly. I've found this free site to help with the basic clean up: https://word2cleanhtml.com.

 

Then you can use a plain text editor like Notepad++ to do your search/replace magic. Like Fabian said, a basic understanding of regular expressions will help with making that task much easier. Here's a good resource for that: https://www.regular-...quickstart.html

 

I hope that helps. And good luck!

You can also convert .docx to clean HTML (or plain text) with Pandoc, a command line tool: https://pandoc.org/
