German Gospel Library App wp7

Postby sebastianfranz » Mon Aug 01, 2011 1:57 pm

first of all, thank you for that amazing app! it's great and i was so happy when i saw it today. i haven't had a look for a while so i didn't know it had been released and it totally made my day. :)

my question now is why there isn't a german bible available? do you know?

same thing with the hymnbook. why isn't that available either?

thank you for your answers!

kind regards,

sebastian

It has to be translated. For the mobile applications there are very few programmers, so most of the translation work is done by volunteer help.

thank you for your answer.

so it is "just" a matter of somebody writing down the words in the app since the translation of course has been done as we do have german hymnbooks? :)

i am guessing with the bible it there might be a problem with copyright or something aswell - i am not sure of the exact reason but it might be the same reason why we cannot have a quad combination in germany. is that possible?

is there a way to volunteer for those tasks? i am not a programmer but i think if somebody would show and explain to me how and where i would have to write the hymnbook i would certainly do that.
