About Paratext Translation & Publishing Software

Paratext and related tools are a collection of software programs for Windows and Linux developed jointly by the United Bible Societies and SIL International which allow you to input, edit, check, and publish a translation of the Scriptures, based on the original texts (Greek, Hebrew), and modeled on versions in major languages.

A growing body of scripture translation text in the USFM format is the basic unit around which all of the Paratext tools, utilities, and companion programs operate.

Paratext has been developed by UBS and SIL primarily for use by translation and publishing project teams. It is also available with some functionality restrictions to any person. Copyright restrictions, especially those determined by third party copyright holders, require that use and distribution of Paratext text resources be strictly limited to those engaged in the Bible translation and publishing process.
