NWT Header



Thanks for your great work on this NWT compiler. It worked great! I now have included the converted file into eSword.

One slight issue is that in eSword the header for the revised NWT reads "NWT-ENGLISH-ENGLISH" on the tab header, and also every reference to NWT in the "Compare" option.

I downloaded WinEdt to edit the bblx file, but could not find any reference to the above expression.

Are you aware of any easy way to edit the superfluous words out of the header? Any help appreciated.

Thanks again,

I can change this in the program itself. May I ask, what would you like to see?

Also, the file is a SQLite file, so you can edit it with any SQLite tool you'd like. I personally use SQLite Manager, an extension for Firefox.

Many thanks for your reply.

Simply "NWT" would be great. This would match the way other translations

Thanks for the tip about SQLite. I'll check it out.

Kind regards, Doug

I can't do that because there are multiple language editions of the NWT. The idea is to show NWT, the English name of the language and the localized name of the language. So only with English does it appear that the name is duplicated.

I'll have to give this more thought.

Thanks again. Don't waste too much time on it. It's a minor issue.

In the previous version of the NWT, after using your compiler, the references came up with the header "NWT -en"

That would still be fine. Much shorter! Even "NWT-en" (without the space) would look nicer.

But again, don't spend too much time on it. I'm sure we all have other important things to do.

Your work is much appreciated.

Kind Regards, Doug

I'll see what I can do. I too liked it better with the language codes, but the new method the branch uses for tagging the Bibles made getting that information more difficult; thus the change.

BTW, there is a table of meta data in the SQLite file that has the name of the Bible. So if you wanted to change it yourself you certainly can.
