Update on Languages

Update! Update! So, after several phone calls, here is the situation. Printing does have almost all the translations in digital form, though there are a *few* that are still on film only. Printing does not want to just release the undoctored pdf files because they have tick marks (for assembling the...

Actually you have it a little backwards. We don't keep the scriptures in PDF format. They are converted to PDF format after they are converted to the Web format. You are referring to the Web / Technical dept., right? I meant the Printing Dept. Unless I'm very much mistaken, Printing has files on co...

Many patriarchs use speech recognition programs to transcribe patriarchal blessings. And speech tech the other way around -- having the computer read text out loud, has obvious potential Church-related uses. Don't know about Vista, but the upcoming Mac OS X is supposed to have a nice built-in text-t...

I was kind of wondering what was happening on this front. In my stake, the guys from Church Headquarters came out and did the simulcast thing about a year ago. We were told we were kind of a test-bed. I was one of the tech guys that helped out. It's a pretty cool setup they put together -- multiple ...

Wow, I can't believe it! That is so great! Thank you. The advantage is just, well, outreach ! It's the same reason the Jehovah's Witnesses have the Watchtower and their outreach materials available online in a kazillion languages. The Church has done amazingly well providing foreign language materia...

Thanks so much for the info, Brother Tom! Would it be possible to post the PDF files from which the physical versions of the scriptures are printed? They are, no doubt printed from such files, or postscript I should say, which is easily converted into PDF. That way, it would be identical to the prin...

KGThunder, we cross-posted (you posted while I was typing), so yeah, I just learned that over at ldsWebguy.com, but thanks! I knew about the /languages portal you mention, of course, which has dozens of languages. Unfortunately it's not geared towards outreach at all. You can get General Conference ...

OK, reading through the forum, and being linked over to ldsWebguy.com, I have learned: 1. Maybe my question is more content-related than this forum is supposed to be. 2. A few days ago German, French, and Italian were added!!!! :) So that's great! That indicates that we probably will not have to wai...

Languages -- Where are they?

I hate to post a criticism, as my first post, but hopefully it will do some good. Why are the scriptures only available online in two languages (English and Spanish)? The text is already digitized for Portuguese, French, and Italian at minimum, because I personally possess these texts -- those langu...
