Armenian Bible translation

Are there plans to produce an Armenian Bible module for the Sword project? It would really be a blessing to us in our work.
Thanks for all you do.

Re: Armenian Bible translation

I just learned that the Bible Society has an Armenian Bible available for download as a .pdf file. Do I need to do anything to officially request that someone produce the modle? I simply don't know how to produce a module for the project myself. Here is the site where you can download the .pdf:

Re: Armenian Bible translation

We would need permission from the Lebanese Bible Society (or whoever owns the copyright to this translation) in order to distribute this translation.

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.
Thanks.

Dear Mel,

Greetings from Beirut. Your email was forwarded to me. We own the copyright for the Western Armenian text that you saw on our website. You will need to send me more details about the proposed usage of this text so that we can consider granting the permission.

Best wishes,
Mike

Hello,
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.
Sincerely,
Mel Skinner
