Yes, like Peter said, I have application which have Indonesian locale.
But I do not have Indonesian bible translation.

I personally have contacted with LAI (Lembaga Alkitab
Indonesia/Indonesian Bible Society) regarding the use of their text as
a Sword Module, but the effort was fruitless.

Due to the above reason, I am in the process of creating my own
translation of Indonesian Bible. You can get it at
http://www.kiyut.com/products/alkitab/developer/index.html (around the
bottom of the page, under Indonesian King James Version (KJV)
Translations. The last update was 15 February 2009. Note it is very
incomplete and layman translation.

If you really interested in electronic bible in Indonesian. You might
be interested to visit
http://www.sabda.org/sabda/. It has free electronic bible in Indonesia.
At the moment they have (quite large Indonesian Bible Collections)
- 9 versi Indonesian Modern
- 5 Melayu/Indoe Kuno pra 1945
- 5 versi Yunani
- 3 versi Ibrani
- 11 versi Inggris
all is packaged in single cd.

Somehow SABDA allowed to distribute LAI version as part of their ministry.
