Post request: Modern Literal Version (MLV)
Hello,

Would it be possible to talk to the translators of Modern Literal Version and make it into an official Bible module?
They offer it for free in e-Sword format, but I couldn't find a way to convert the .bblx file to theWord format.

There is a 2011 version, but this Bible is updated continuously (several times per year), in an attempt to make it the most accurate English translation.

Thanks,
Cristian

We tried in the past to get permission but we couldn't. We could retry

Yes.

The problem is that MLV is a "living translation", being released at least once every year. The plan is to make it the most accurate English translation, so they continuously tweak it.
2011 is at least 5 versions old.

Also the e-sword version comes with 2 more nice modules: a concordance and a dictionary.

It really surprises me that they refused Costas. They plainly said they have it under copyright just to prevent others from copyrighting it and charge people money for it.

God bless you,
Cristian

I've been in touch with the MLV people - mlvbible@gmail.com - and they are very happy for TheWord to produce a module of their latest Bible version. It's a great translation, so that's good news for all of us!

Unless I am mistaken, the version on WordModule.com is the 2011 edition, while BibleStudy.com (e-Sword) has the 2017 version.
