Why can't Church make materials available in Portuguese?

I think the answer is really very simple: resources. The Church simply doesn't have enough resources to do everything for every language. Like anyone faced with this situation, they have to prioritize. How they set those priorities, I don't know (I wish there was a statement somewhere that explained...

Check for copyright issues--even with the scriptures

Mariano, you said you wanted to work on an italian version of the scriptures yourself. But you might not be able to distribute it. The copyright for the current version of the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants and Pearl of Great Price are owned by the Church, and in order to distribute them to ...

Well, unless it's the stake or temple district you live in. :) So it would be nice to do this is "layers" that allow you to turn on/off history according to your interests. Now, I'm sure someone would find the date that the church started doing membership records using OCR Font typewriters, started...

I believe mormon.org is filling that role. It has a very nice layout of our basic beliefs and a place to ask questions to a live missionary online. I think this misses the point of Elder Ballard's speech. The idea wasn't just to support resources created by the Church, but to also create your own s...

Funny you should mention this link; here is a tool the Church is developing right now based on that project: http://tech.lds.org/wiki/index.php/Church_Historical_Timeline_Application Because it is on the LDS Tech Wiki, it appears they would like the Community to get involved. I'm sure more details ...

Just came across this article: Google's translation center: Language lessons for the Googlebot? Fascinating, Dan. Obviously this isn't a solution for what we're talking about here (you wouldn't know who is doing the translation if you used this future service, as far as I can tell). But it is certa...

You can try with programs that help translations like kbabel . It can help your local translators avoiding waste of time translating the same phrases in different documents. And you can share your local 'phrases dictionary' with others. For example. If I write a letter in English about Home teachin...

One additional problem with the new system is that it doesn't allow searching by partial zip codes in the US. On the old Meetinghouse locator, if I choose the US and enter the first three digits of the zip code, I get all the wards and branches with zip codes that begin with those digits. For exampl...

We do have postal code coverage internationally, but unfortunately we don't have local address formats and could possibly be missing some secondary address fields if they are country specific. Feel free to submit problems with details through the Feedback link on the site. That's the best way to ge...
