I would really like to see some of the modern Bible translations included in the Sword Project, like the NIV (New International Version) and the NLT (New Living Translation).
I use the NLT alot but I don't have it on the computer.  
I realize that there are copyright issues and that Tyndale in this case MUST grant the Sword Project permission to use their Bible translation.
I have written a letter to Tyndale House only to have a man from their e-mail me and say that he couldn't grant my request because you guys would be giving it to people for FREE and they have contracted with all of these companies that are selling it.

Please someone down there at Sword please call, write and e-mail these GREEDY ORGANIZATIONS and ask them that they share with people who are less fortent or those who don't like to PAY FOR SOFTWARE and ask them to please let the Sword Project have access to their Bible translations.
The same goes for all of the Foreign Language Translations.  I realize the GREAT need to them for alot of people.
