Learning to read takes books. Learning to read well, and developing a love of reading, takes lots of books. Books at all different skill levels. But how are low-literacy language communities ever to get all those books in their language? They can do it with Bloom.
Bloom uses collections of "shell books" that come with multiple source languages. Read the ones you understand, type in a translation in your language, and you're done!

myWorkSafe Provides a super-simple backup system for language-development workers.
Once installed, myWorkSafe is always running. It places a small icon in the Windows Task Bar. When you insert a USB flash drive for the first time, the application asks you if you want to use it for Backup. Subsequently, when you insert it, myWorkSafe opens and begins backing up. It already knows about many common language development applications, and where they keep their data. For example, it knows how to find your Paratext files, AdaptIt Files, OurWord Files, FLEx and...
The PrimerPrep program is designed to help you:

What is Render?
Render is an oral Bible translation software developed and tested by three partnering agencies: Seed Company, Pioneer Bible Translators and Faith Comes By Hearing.
Translating with Render

A tool for publishing MP3 files on SD cards.
Why use Pub2SDwizard?
Just copying your MP3 files on to an SD card is easy enough, but:
What order do you wish them to play in?
- Since different devices and applications will sort them in different ways, how do you force them to play in the order you desire? - While a simple radio can play files from SD cards or USB sticks, the files will probably be sorted and played solely on their filenames. But mobile phones may sort the files on their creation or last modified date or other embedded metadata
A tool for publishing dictionaries (bilingual or multilingual) on the web with a minimum amount of technical skill.
Webonary includes the ability to set up Google analytics to track how many people visit your dictionary.
If you work in Paratext and use the Project Interlinearizer to create a word for word back translation of your text, Paratext remembers that data, and how you parse words so that it can automatically supply the glosses as you go along. But where is all the data from your hard work? What if you want to use that data to start a dictionary in the language?
This app converts the internal Paratext lexicon file (lexicon.xml) to a SFM (Standard Format Marker) lexicon file. This is a simple utility to get the Paratext lexicon into a format that can be imported into...

Search Everything is a great little utility for finding files on your computer. It only indexes the file's name. So the indexing is really quick and unnoticeable. I find it useful several times a day. Even if I know where a file is Search Everything will often get to it quicker than using Windows Explorer.
