Luther's 1545 German translation is already in BibleWorks 7.0, but could an ELM expert easily put together for the rest of us a simple way to link from BW, chapter by chapter, to the Lutherbibel 1545 here?


The notes and the illustrations may both be useful. Linking by chapter would be more valuable then just linking to the index page. Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Hello Dan,

there is a Zefania-xml module with the text of this site. (http://joomla.zykloide.de/Joomla_1.0.10-Stable-Full_Package/content/view/55/1/ --> Luther 1545 (Letzte Hand))
From this Zefania-xml module I've created a BW-Importfile by using the OLB-Bibelkonverter (http://www.runge-idstein.de/OLB/index2.htm).
You'll find the BW-Importfile at http://www.runge-idstein.de/OLB/ - Go to "Importfiles / BibleWorks".

Please check it.

Thanks very much, Martin. I was able to download and unzip the 4.57 megabyte text file, BW_Luther1545LH.

Opening the file, I can see how it includes the notes, as well as the text. (I'm interested in both the pictures and the notes from the website; I realize getting one into BW is probably quite different than the other.)

Can I now import this file into BibleWorks using the Version Database Compiler?

If so, any guidance?

Thanks again.

Sorry, but I'm not a BW-user.

I can't help you, how to import the file into BW.

(...the file includes no pictures...)
