There aren't any Indonesian Bibles available. Is there any chance that these modules could be added? ESword has two free Indonesian translations to select from, but I don't know if they are freely distributable. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Indonesian?
We have requested permission from the Indonesia Bible Society to distribute the three Indonesian Bibles that are often distributed for free by various Bible software publishers, but the Indonesian Bible Society declined our request. Many Bible software publishers are, unfortunately, distributing these Bibles in violation of the Indonesian Bible Society's copyright and wishes. Unless the Bible society changes its policy, there's nothing we can do about this.

It might be helpful to contact the Indonesian Bible Society directly to make your case for their allowing us to distribute some of their works.

Re: Indonesian?
thanks so much for the, that really is a bummer about the society not being willing to distribute the translations. I'll have to see what I can do about that. Thanks again for your response.
