Looking a bit deeper at their offer, I'm asking myself is it really worth to abandon Accordance because they are not offering more German tagged bible text, I would like to see eg Schlachter2000 with tagging. To be honest, for me I see no reason to change to Logos.

 

Like Accordance they offer mainly works in English and to buy again the same in Logos is a waste of money. And a lot of scientific works are only available in English. The same here and there with a similar price tag.

 

I have also to say, I read mainly Hebrew, prefer rabbinical stuff over other things so I'm no longer dependent on bible translations and the offerings of Logos or Accordance. Most of the commentaries, like Rashi, Rambam I do not expect to see in Accordance, here I have to go Bar Illan Responsa and Serfaria resp. real books. In Israel, fortunately, still a preferred method to learn and read. 

 

So what could be the recommendation of us German speakers to Accordance be, to give them a hint, how they could to survive in German speaking Europe?

Probably also a German speaking responsible Person here in Europe?

Current Accordance spend about $125 a Month, used to be over twice as high during the End of Summer, Autumn &Winter 2018/2019

Any of the following with an etext and/or an Accordance rep working from Germany/Austria:
Some ECF partial, well selected compromise, to scroll along English and Latin. IF there's no Latin currently under Accordance produce that too, any Edition

Brief Latin-German key just for commonly misunderstood words prone to otherwise enter hastily written papers
Some German Bible in print similar to the 1985 New Jerusalem Bible (whole) and Revised New Jerusalem Bible just New Testament portion (I won't use the OT of it), without notes. Is it also used by Protestants or will be if it would be one of the few or only recent German Bible with both OT and NT? I must apologise but I've read the Bible only in English for fifteen Years and am now at loss about pros and cons about different German Bible versions

Bauer Koiné Gk-German lexicon from etext with tagging added
A condensed Theological Hebrew-German dictionary whether transliterations or non-
Catholic Cathecism in German
A monograph that has Luther's moral standards, in German, deeper than populistic, if there's one from early 20th century just before or after WWI.
A German Bible dictionary.

Would this above be well prioritised? Later when a German language academic groundbreaking monograph comes out, if it's under a publisher with which Accordance has relationships and a voting system here on the forums or by email to German Accordance users lifts it to awareness levels, it should get produced here:

So what could be the recommendation of us German speakers to Accordance be, to give them a hint, how they could to survive in German speaking Europe?

I don't want to switch from Accordance to Logos, too.

 
A few years ago, when I set up the website accordancebible.de (at that time still as an independent website), I got requests about Accordance from German-speaking users. At some point the maintenance of the site became too much for me. So at least then there was a lively interest in Accordance in the German-speaking area.
 
Logos currently offers almost 200 German resources. Among them are dictionaries like Bauer-Aland (in spring 2019), dogmatics like Wayne Grudem's (I could contact the publisher there) and commentaries. There are also biblical encyclopedias and the works of Luther or Bonhoeffer as well as Greek courses.
 
My wishes are much more modest: I would like a German tagged Bible text, the Bauer-Aland and maybe a German bible dictionary.
 
Beyond that it makes sense not only for the German-speaking area, but for all, who concern themselves scientifically with church history and dogmatics, to offer also the texts of people like Luther, Calvin, Bonhoeffer, Barth etc. in German (thus in the language, in which they were written).
 
But what is really interesting is what Accordance thinks? Is there interest in doing something for the German market, and if so, to what extent?

 I agree with your modes wishes.

 

Concerning the statement about church history, this was the reason a friend of mine learned German. So for those in theology an important point. BTW: this is not my cup of tea.

 

Lets see what accordance think resp. if they make a statement at all.

Many in my field publish in German. I would love this as well since the best way to learn German is to be immersed in it...

Hi all,

 

Thanks for the continued feedback here. There's a lot that could be commented on here, especially some significant misconceptions about our efforts to acquire these resources. So, maybe I can help to clarify a few things.

 

1. We have researched the viability of acquiring a number of the public domain German translations tagged with Strong's numbers. In the process we have encountered several difficulties that have not made it possible at present to acquire and develop them. Without going into a line-by-line reply to every possible text, the significant issues have to do with verifying the provenance of the tagging, and royalties being charged for those we can verify the provenance of. To be clear: we will not develop a public domain resource without being able to clearly discover where the text came from, who did the tagging, whether there are any intellectual rights to that tagging, and how well the tagging was done. We have been burned by this over the years, and especially recently. 

 

2. We have and will continue to attempt to acquire more modern resources from reputable publishers and bible societies where we are able to come to a reasonable agreement on terms, and where verified electronic texts are available. This includes investing into new resources, e.g. the Leonberger Bibel.

 

As you can imagine, we receive requests on a daily basis for resources. We have to balance these requests with those that have been ongoing (sometimes for years!), and balance them within our larger objectives for new content, and placement of resources in to Content as compared to Application development across 4 platforms. 

 

As always, we read every request that comes in whether via the forums, email or otherwise. We do not have time to reply publicly to every request, but we are listening.

 

Thank you for your continued support and feedback.

So the Elberfelder CSV mit Strong's is finished. The publisher has done his work.

 

Now its up to OakTree to bring it in Accordance.
