The BW7 base package comes with a ton of texts (http://www.bibleworks.com/forums/../content/full.html) and that there are lots more user-created texts you can add at the unofficial BW Blog (http://bibleworks.oldinthenew.org/files.html). You also know that the command line provides quick access to any text... as you long as you know the abbreviation for it. But then you have to remember which one is the morphologically tagged version and which translations go with which original text and which variant versions there are...
I've created a spreadsheet that lists all the available BW7 texts with their abbreviations along with brief descriptions, including info identifying language, content, morphological pairs, translations pairs, and related texts. One sheet of the spreadsheet organizes them by groups. (Cf. the graphic above.) The second sheet is a straight alphabetical listing of the abbreviations. If you have the software to deal with an XLS file, you can, of course, modify and manipulate the data any way you wish. If you can't handle XLS files, I have also provided PDF versions of the two sheets.
You will note that I have not collected all the non-English, modern Bible translations. If someone else wants to create such a list, I would be happy to post it on my blog site. If there are updates or corrections, let me know, and I will try to keep this database current. Thanks.
You can download the files from THIS PAGE.

Now that I have all the text abbreviations set, I'm building up to a short lesson on how to manage the texts you display. Before I get there, you may want to take a look at this blog posting (http://bibleandtech.blogspot.com/2008/08/bibleworks7-working-with-tabs.html) with a 2 minute video on using tabs in BW7.

Please keep these coming. I'd never ever thought about the save/load tabs thingy. Very cool. Thanks for demonstrating.

Here's the next step... a 3'45" video on various ways of accessing and displaying texts, especially using the display settings tool. Via the blog HERE (http://bibleandtech.blogspot.com/2008/08/bibleworks7-accessing-and-displaying.html).

This blog post on using tab sets with Search/Display favorites (http://bibleandtech.blogspot.com/2008/08/bibleworks7-using-tab-sets.html) is where I was mainly heading a long time ago... but then I realized that I needed to organize all the BW7 texts and that is where the first post in this thread came in...
The full explanation is on the blog, but here is the mgvhcollection.SWC file (http://www.scrollandscreen.com/files/mgvhcollection.swc) to downloaed and save in your BibleWorks7/init directory. (Do not open it; your computer will probably think it is a Flash file.)
Also, if you have a great collection of tabs of your own, share them here!
