Dear Mr. Tang,

this is wonderful news!

Can you tell us some more technical details about your aims? What kind of 
software will you write? Which platform(s)? Which programming language?

I just thought that there might be a possibility that you use and extend 
already existing software like Sword for Windows or BibleTime for KDE/Linux. 
It is possible to add new translations for these software packages.
