I'm starting a new project at sourceforge.net, titled "Biblic Translation
Platform". We will be 4 developers. I would like to know if we could make it
part of the crosswire project.

Some details about the Biblic Translation Platform (codename "biblic").
Platform: OS indipendent
Programming langs: Perl, C++, Java, JavaScript, PHP
User interface: wxWidgets, web
Database, MySQL, ODBC
Biblic Translation Platform (BTP) is a translation software with many
utilities, which aid translating from Hebrew and Aramaic. It is specifically
targeted to biblic and jewish mystical sources.

Tools will include: conversion utilities for Hebrew and Aramaic (addressing
charset issues, etc.), database backup tools for right-to-left languages,
web Hebrew-English-Hebrew dictionary (later Hebrew-Italian-Hebrew also), web
Aramaic-English-Aramaic dictionary (later Aramaic-English-Aramaic also),
realtime Hebrew translator (standalone and web), realtime Aramaic translator
(standalone and web), Hebrew bible translation memory for CAT tools, misc
tools for developers, etc.

We believe that after the Brown-Driver-Briggs Lexicon, this project will be
the next great innovation in the biblic field. It will provide invaluable
tools both to scholars and translators.
Putting online our dictionary (which currently is for modern Hebrew), users
will be able to enhance it, and slowly train it with biblic Hebrew.  More
people will use it, and more the realtime translator will become effective.

 Kindest regards,
