Use theWord in your own language!

theWord is fully localizable. This means that all messages, menus and everything you see on the program (apart from the actual resources like Bibles, books, etc.) can be translated in your own language. 

To add a language for the interface of theWord, you just need to download the appropriate file(s) from this page.

 

Instructions - how to add a new language

  1. Download the file you want from the following list. You can add more than one language if you want by repeating this procedure.
  2. Once you download the file, double-click on it to execute it. An installer will start. Follow the on-screen instructions.
  3. When the installer finishes, make sure you restart The Word.
  4. From within the program, locate the menu File -> Languages. From there, you can change the language of the interface of the program.

Updating an existing language file

The language files may get updated or corrected as new versions are released or when errors are detected. You can use the same procedure if you want to get an updated version of a language file you are already using. To find out the version of the language file you are using:

  1. Open The Word
  2. From the main menu, go to Help -> About
  3. In the About Dialog, click on the File locations tab (the last one)
  4. At the bottom of the screen, there is a list with all files used by the program. Locate in there the file corresponding to the language you use (if you click on the Type column, the list will be sorted, thus making it easier to locate the entry you want). The Type column for language files should write .lng. For example, the language file for the English language is named english and the Type column should read .lng.
  5. Now, notice that in the File column, after the name of the file there is the version of it (e.g. english (ver. 3.0.0.541-31)). This is what you need to compare with the latest version of the language file here.
  6. If all the above seems complicated, you can alternately select from the main menu Help -> Check for update on modules and language files... and you will get a list of all files/modules with a newer version.

Random verse

For if we believe that Jesus has died and has risen again, so also God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep through Jesus. (For this we say to you in [the] word of [the] Lord, that *we*, the living, who remain to the coming of the Lord, are in no way to anticipate those who have fallen asleep; for the Lord himself, with an assembling shout, with archangel's voice and with trump of God, shall descend from heaven; and the dead in Christ shall rise first; then *we*, the living who remain, shall be caught up together with them in [the] clouds, to meet the Lord in [the] air; and thus we shall be always with [the] Lord.   (1 Thessalonians 4:14-17)
