The vast majority of Protestant Bibles will not come along with
deuterocanonical stuff. Many people will not even be aware of the
existence of this.

It looks to me that we have (at least) three traditions in Germany and

Darby like Bibles (Elberfelder) -> KJV should cover that.

Luther etc (includes lots of French).


I am not sure where Geneve Bibles will find their place in this or
whether they have again a different way.

Most of the differences are as usual in Pentateuch and small prophets
