XeTeX based macro package for typesetting USFM formatted (Paratext output) scripture files
Typesetting in minutes, not months
PTXprint is a relatively new tool (still in active development) to help teams easily produce adequate quality printed output from Paratext for the purpose of trial publications. It aims to hide all the complexity of XeTeX from the user, and presents an extensive range of options through a simple click-to-enable user-interface....
Glossinator provides a quick and easy way to look at the lexemes and the glosses that are entered in the Paratext interlinearizer. It functions as a companion to Paratext.
SUMMARY: A morphological parser for linguistic exploration
DETAILS: When given the necessary information about the morphology of a language, AMPLE will analyze each word in a text and break it into morphemes. AMPLE is oriented to the "item and arrangement" approach to the description of morphological phenomena. It can handle nonconcatenative phenomena only indirectly. AMPLE works together with STAMP (OPAC 15) for Computer-Assisted Related Language Adaptation (CARLA). It can also be used in conjunction with ITF (OPAC 17) for publishing glossed texts in interlinear form.
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.
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.

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

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

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.
