Finding How a word is translated in different versions




Page Contents



Objective

To show how an original language word is translated in other bibles – primarily your English bibles with a Reverse Interlinear.

Using Information Tool

The Information tool in current versions of Logos can be used to show translations in other bibles e.g. from a word in one RI to its translation in your other RI’s (below).




  1. Open a Bible which has Reverse Interlinear e.g. ESV, NKJV, NASB.
  2. Locate a word which you want to see in different translations and right click to get the Context menu.
  3. On the shaded side of the menu locate your Lemma and click on it.
  4. On the other side of the menu, click on a Search option that shows your lemma.
    • Logos will open a Search panel, where you will need to make some adjustments



  5. Click on the Resources field. Logos will show you a drop down list.
  6. Click on the Range field. In the drop down menu click in the Reference Range box
    and type the scripture reference for the word you started your search with.



  7. Now click on the display method Aligned to have your result word lined up for you.
    • Notice how your word is found in your different English Bibles.


Creating an English Bibles collection

The example below will show you how to build a collection of English Bibles. But if you have used Tagging to indicate Reverse Interlinear bibles you could use that as a collection rule e.g. mytag:RI

  1. In the top menu click on Tools
  2. In the drop down menu click on Collections. Logos will open the Collection tool in a new panel.



  3. In the Collection toolbar click on New to create a new collection.




  4. Now in the name box type: English Bibles
  5. Now in the Rule box type: type:bible AND lang:english
    1. Now Logos shows you how many books in your collection and shows you the titles.
