The New World Translation has been put into a form ready to be compiled in BibleWorks. I do not know who prepared the files, but it was back in the time of BibleWorks 5 or 6. Since NWT is still under copyright (first published in the 1950s and 60s) I do not know the legality of sharing the files. If someone wants to check with the Watchtower Society to see if sharing NWT without charge is okay with them, I know that the necessary files could be made available for use with the version database compiler.

I considered contacting Watchtower regarding this issue. The problem is all contact requests are funneled to local Kingdom Halls and handled locally. Personally, I'd rather not deal with the Witnesses.

Having said that, it is a relatively easy matter to create your own copy of the NWT. Copy the text from the Watchtower website (or use eSword's NWT module) and convert it into a text file for BW (my, that sounds simple, doesn't it?).
