Our software is called The Bible Translator's Assistant, and you can download it here. The installation program includes the English and Tagalog projects. In order to use TBTA, you must download and run the installation program.
We occasionally update the software, and you can get the latest version by downloading the latest file set (but first you must download and run the installation program). After downloading the latest file set, if you haven't yet started working on your own language project, then you can simply copy the new files into your TBTA project directory, and they will replace the old files from the installation program. If you have already started your own language project with TBTA, then after you download the latest file set, you need to go through an upgrade process which is described in this video.
Download: Latest File Set (last updated on April 7th, 2021)
The latest file set includes the source texts for Genesis, Exodus 1-20, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1&2 Samuel, Esther, Daniel, Jonah, Nahum, Luke, 71 Bible Stories, and 3 community development articles.
If you have any issues installing or running our software, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
