    Default How to Greek search results to English?

    In BW 7, you could do a concordance search on a Greek lemma or phrase, then easily convert those results in the search window to an English version by typing a three-letter English version code in the command line. This doesn't work in BW 8. Does anyone know how to get from Greek to English for search results?

    Do you mean the following? If you search something in Greek and then in the command line type "ESV", then right below the command line in the green menu bar click the down arrow and choose "Synchronize Results List"

    Run, e.g., the Greek Search. Enter the three-letter version code (e.g., ESV). You know see, e.g., ESV / BGM. Then choose from the CL Versions Button Synchronise Results List. That will do the conversion. The old CL command seems to be discarded.

    You could also do a remapping in the Verse List Manager, but that is much more cumbersome.

    PS: Michael Hanel was quicker than me.
