Re: Armenian Bible translation
I took the liberty to contact the Lebanese Bible Society. I will paste a copy of the email I received in response. He is asking for more information about the proposed usage that I cannot answer! Please advise how to respond and / or what to do from here.

I am interested in producing a Armenian Bible module for the Sword Project (open source) Bible study program for the Linux operating system. I noticed on your web page that you have a downloadable .pdf file of the Armenian Bible. Please tell me who owns the copyright to the translation and who I need to contact to receive permission to distribute this translation.
Thank you, in advance for your help.
