XeTeX

SUMMARY:  A Unicode typesetting system based on TeX

DETAILS:  XeTeX is a typesetting system based on a merger of Donald Knuth's TeX system with Unicode and modern font technologies and is still in the experimental stage of its development.

XeTeX is a command-line tool, like standard TeX and pdfTeX processors. It is most commonly used via a graphical environment such as TeXShop (Mac OS X), KILE (Linux), WinEDT (Windows), or others.

 

WordSend

WordSend is a software project that allows you to convert Scripture files from Unicode USFM (and eventually from selected other formats) to other formats for the purpose of publishing those Scriptures in various print or electronic formats. Currently, the most useful transformation is the conversion of Unicode USFM to Microsoft Word XML documents (WordML) for the purpose of typesetting or printing for village checking. It is also possible to use WordSend to help facilitate using Microsoft Word 2003 or later as a Scripture editor in some cases.

Vocabulary Manager

Vocabulary Manager is a multimedia vocabulary learning tool, like an electronic flash card system with audio. VM allows you to create a database of vocabulary items with an image and two audio recordings (one for a 'citation' form and one for the 'in context' form) for each item. As you build the database, you can practice the words, and test yourself in terms of comprehension, production, and spelling. When you want to share the database and audio and picture files, the program will package it up for easy sharing. The new users can then easily modify the database to meet their own language learning needs.

SF Converter

The S(tandard)F(ormat) Converter is a utility designed to read a plain text file tagged with SIL Standard Format Markers and produce a file in Microsoft's Rich Text Format (RTF) suitable for printing with Word and many other word processors. It can be used to format and print dictionaries and other documents.

Also included in this package is a Scripture Text Template, a Microsoft Word template designed to help enter, edit, format, and print scripture translations in Word. It also provides for conversion back into a standard format text file using SF converter.

ToneGen

The ToneGen program incorporates the STAMP morphological generation program to allow for modeling an autosegmental approach to tone.

For more information, contact Andy Black.

 

RegExPal

RegExPal is a utility that works alongside of Paratext to do powerful search and replace on scripture text.

  • It lets you see your "find" go to work as you build it (it's dynamic).
  • It let's you see problems with your expression while you are typing it letting you know by a blue highlighter when it is invalid or not yet complete (because more of the expression is required).
  • When you do a replace you get to see a before and after view of the "replace" (one at a time) so you can see if it is working the way you want it to.

TonePars

The TonePars program augments the AMPLE morphological parser program to allow for modeling an autosegmental approach to tone.

STAMP

SUMMARY:  Morphological transfer and synthesis for adapting text to a related language

DETAILS:  STAMP works with AMPLE (OPAC 12) to adapt text from one language to another (closely) related language, a process known as "Computer-Assisted Related Language Adaptation" (CARLA). STAMP provides morphological transfer and synthesis for words analyzed by AMPLE. The result is, at best, a rough draft suitable for editing by a competent speaker of the target language.

Interlinear Text Formatter

SUMMARY:  Interlinear Text Formatter

DETAILS:  ITF (Interlinear Text Formatter) is a set of TeX macros for typesetting interlinear texts. These macros can format an arbitrary number of aligning annotations with up to two freeform annotations. Programs are provided with the ITF package for converting output from IT or AMPLE into the format required by ITF. The ITF TeX macros can be used with either TeX 2.9 or TeX 3. A LaTeX style is provided as well as the plain TeX formatting definitions.
