Converting other program’s books into TheWord.

Class Objective: To learn how to convert other Bible Programs modules into theWord.

For this class, you will need to first download the theWord converter tool found here.

The formats that this utility imports are:

Buy me Burrito!
Burritos are delicious. Meat, beans, sour cream, veggies, wrapped in a tortilla. We all enjoy burritos! But you know that you cannot have what is good without somebody paying for it. If you have enjoyed things on my website, please consider helping me maintain the expenses of this site. Consider at least a one time donation to this ministry of $10 or $20 dollars? Very infrequently (one person every 3-6 months) will somebody donate something. Usually that is all I receive from 34 websites! Yet, from my download statistics, I have about 96 gigabytes total being downloaded monthly from all of these websites. Be a blessing to me and donate any amount. It would be really great if you could gift me and my wife (who splits a burrito?) this money so that we could enjoy eating out at least once in a while. (I pay the expenses for these sites out of our living expenses.) God will richly bless you and repay you for your generosity. 1 Timothy 5:18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward. If you received some value from my websites, consider at least a small donation. A big donation would really be nice, too, though.

• RTF files from your local disk (to create a commentary or book)
• e-Sword modules (only non-password protected modules)
Zefania XML modules
• Unbound Bible modules

First of all, notice that besides importing or converting modules or files from other formats into theWord format, there are other features that this importer does.

Run the program, and you will see this screen. (Tab1)

Tab1: Disk Files

This importer tool will import with RTF files to make a module. For this tab, you will need to indicate the information about, mostly the module title, and where the files are. Note that this feature is most useful when in some other program you can export the files chapters in the format of RTF files.

TAB2 Import from e-Sword modules

The restrictions of importing e-Sword modules are the following:

1) you cannot import any version 10 REFX files.
2) you cannot import any version 9-10 Bibles (bblx) files.
3) you cannot import any locked e-Sword modules.

Darby-j-n-the-parables(fuz){brethren} Gbk
Darby-j-n-the-parables(fuz){brethren} Gbk
34.0 KiB

Most probably any “read-only” files will not be imported either. Any corrupted e-Sword modules will of course not be read.

You should see this when you click on the tab.

The way this works is that you pick a folder on your hard disk, and the utility will read the files it finds there, and the numbers (0) above will be changed to reflect the number of modules of that type found. You can selectively exclude groups of modules. You then click “Convert” and your files will be converted.

TAB3 and TAB4 Import Bibles from Unbound Bible and Zephania.

These two websites have public domain Bibles, and if you find a Bible you like there, you can download the Bible to your hard drive and import it into theWord format. Zefania or unbound Bible and choose a Bible and download it.

From there choose a tab corresponding with the site where you downloaded the Bible, and select the file and convert the Bible.

TAB5 Other Utilities

This tab has various utilities which you can run on a theWord module to do various things to it.

 Tab 6 Import Chapter Headings into a Bible

With this utility, you can import chapter headings into a theWord Bible.
