For those interested, here is the complete East Asian Bible pack for BibleWorks 7 which includes all 3 East Asian Bibles mentioned in this thread in a self-executable file.
You can download the pack at either of these links:

[Links removed] (see post #1 for the new downloads)

**07/11/06 Update: The old links were replaced with the new (07/11/06) Addon Pack.


Downloading: If you are not familiar with free file hosting services, you need to wait about 30-60 seconds before receiving a downloading ticket which will then allow you to click to another page where you can download the actual file for free. You do *not* have to purchase the premium file service to download this file.
Installation: Just open the file and click install. That's it.

NOTE: BIBLEWORKS 7 DOES NOT SUPPORT A SEARCH FUNCTION WITH JAPANESE OR ANY OTHER UNICODE LANGUAGE. PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME ABOUT THIS. This topic has also been discussed elsewhere in this forum.

If anybody has a text version of any of the other Japanese Bible Versions that they would like to import into BibleWorks, just email me and I can try to help you out.

Thanks,

Robin

Update: This post has been updated with the new update (07/04/06)

Megaupload instructions: For megaupload, you need to enter a three-character access code near the top-right corner of the page and click on the DOWNLOAD button to the right of it (click on image link below to see example).

After that, you should be taken to a page that will enable you to download the file after about 45 seconds (you should see a timer counting down on this page). When about 10-15 seconds are left on this timer, an annoying orange advertisement will appear out of nowhere, sometimes covering the download button. Just close this advertisement when it appears and then click the button that says "Click here to download".

Sometimes the download page will get messed up and you'll get a page that asks you to enter another three-character code. Keep trying until you get to the page and you'll eventually get the file.

Blessings,

Robin

Rapidshare instructions: For rapidshare, click the "Free" button located near the bottom-right corner of the first page.

After that, you should be taken to a page that will enable you to download the file after about 40-45 seconds (you should see a timer counting down on this page). After the timer has counted down, you'll see a colourful box with three characters drawn in it (click on image link below to see example). Type in those three characters into the blank box next to it and then click on the box that says "Download from *location*".

Blessings,

Robin

Incidentally, I forgot to mention that you must have the Arial Unicode MS Font installed to view the Japanese Bibles. This is the huge 23MB font that normally comes with Microsoft Office XP/2003 (run a Full installation to get it).

Update 07/04/06: Ignore this post! You do not need the Arial Unicode MS Font anymore to view the updated Japanese Bibles.

Sounds great!

I've just replied to you by email (I need you to resend the files because I didn't receive them), but hopefully I'll be able to work with these versions and we'll really be able to make some serious progress with the Korean Bibles.

Thanks,

Robin

Hi Robin,

I have emailed it to you.
Check your box.

Thanks.

Haejin,

Wow. I've just converted all of the Bibles you sent me and its amazing. I tried looking all over the internet for different Korean versions and I couldn't find any.

Well, this is really going to change a few things. I think I'm going to separate the East Asian Language packs again into KOREAN, CHINESE and JAPANESE.

Also, 5 of the ROMANIZED versions you sent me are not actually romanized, but actually the Korean versions that have just been retyped by english keystrokes. As a result, they just appear as random english gibberish and so they will not be included in the final set unless they can be converted to a proper romanization.

Thanks!

Robin

Due to Haejin Kim's recent massive update, the Korean Bibles have escalated to first place amongst the three languages.

If *anybody* has any Chinese or Japanese (or even more Korean) Bibles that can be added to this list, please let me know so that we can really make BibleWorks the most complete Bible software in the world.

I've just updated the Japanese Bibles. The acronyms JKUG, JSNKI, JSNKD were driving me crazy.

Thanks to my Japanese pastor friend however, they have finally been identified properly and the links have been updated. You can re-download the Japanese Bibles under their proper names now at post #1 of this thread:
