Dear Michael,

Thanks for this.  In anticipation we have already produced a Sword module 
of your translation which can be offered as soon as you wish.  It is 
currently an encyphered module which could be made available to you or made 
available for download from our site.  The possibilities are several.  
Either we, or you could carry the module (which we are willing to supply 
free of charge).  The module could be re-built in un-encyphered form if you 
so wish, or you could retain control by making the encryption key available 
through your own offices.  You would of course be free to make a charge for 
this to the end user if you wish.  We regret that we ourselves have no 
means of handling payment on your behalf if you do wish to charge. 

You may either supply our bible reader software yourselves (at no charge) 
so that your module may be used, or you may point users to our site.

The Sword Project has reader software available for an ever increasing 
number of platforms including Linux and Windows and several PDA systems.

If you would like to co-operate with us in some way that I have not 
suggested above, please get back to me.  If you would like to check out the 
module yourself, write me for the key, and then download as a locked module 
through the Windows installer and enter the key when asked.  If you are 
wanting to try the module other than under Windows, I will give you the ftp 
url to get the locked module.

God bless,
