Versification errors
I am running the versification test on my newly created Bible in OSIS format like this:
osis2mod c:\outputdir\ bible.xml -v German


But it is outputting a lot of errors on all valid choices/versifications. I have tried testing with these different versifications (erroneous verses in paranthesis):
German (77 verses)
Luther (77 verses)
KJV (91 verses)
NRSV (91 verses)
Vulg (816 verses)

I have checked four other norwegian translations, and quick check tells me that none of them is using a standardized versification.

Is it normal that translations have their own special versifications?

Re: Versification errors
Well, I have come a bit further, without you guys help :)

The new problem: All verses after Lam 3:22 are left out of the Sword module:
I have managed to generate a Sword module of the Bible. The tool osis2mod is given the argument"-v German" for German versification. During the generation the tool outputs a lot of verses that about problems with the versification. The last lines of the output before it finishes is this:
INFO(V11N): Song of Solomon 6:13 is not in the German versification.  
INFO(V11N): Song.6.13 is not in the German versification. Appending content to Song.6.12
INFO(V11N): Isaiah 9:21 is not in the German versification.
INFO(V11N): Isa.9.21 is not in the German versification. Appending content to Isa.9.20
INFO(V11N): Jeremiah 9:26 is not in the German versification.
INFO(V11N): Jer.9.26 is not in the German versification. Appending content to Jer.9.25


When I load the module into the Windows application BPBible all verses after Lamenratios 3:22 missing (3:22 is the last).

My Bible (OSIS XML format) validates, and the XML looks fine when I look at the lines where the generation of the modules stops:
<verse osisID="Lam.3.21">Dette vil eg leggja meg på hjarta, og difor vil eg vona:</verse>
<verse osisID="Lam.3.22">Herrens nåde det er, at det ikkje er ute med oss, for hans miskunn er enn ikkje all.</verse>
<verse osisID="Lam.3.23">Kvar morgon er ho ny, å, stor er din truskap.</verse>


Is there another place to ask for help? It seems like this forum is not frequently visited.

Have you read through this?

http://www.crosswire.org/wiki/Alternate_Versification

Also, if your using German your module has to have the right verses in it, just remove the verses that are not in the German bible or else use a different versification.

Also, you can post a question at this site:

Re: Versification errors
BPBible IMO can't yet deal with alternate versifications. Might this be the problem why you don't see the verses?

No, that is not the problem. I can see all the verses that got imported into the module, the conversion from OSIS to Sword module is the problem, the osis2mod tool terminates without error message.

I have made a post to the sword developement maillist and is getting some help there now.
