Notice to User


This Paratext User License Agreement accompanies the Paratext 7 software (CD-ROM or downloaded installation package) and related explanatory materials ("Software"). The term "Software" also shall include any upgrades, modified versions, plug-ins such as tagged texts, or updates of the Software licensed to you by UBS.

1. Use of the Software

Use of this software and the Scripture text resources included in it is restricted to individuals who are actively involved in text processing or publishing support related to Bible translation.

The registered user may delegate other participants involved in text processing or publishing support for a particular translation project to access and use an existing registered and installed copy of the software (the intent is to license concurrent use of the software), but the registered user continues to hold responsibility to ensure legitimate use of the software. You may install the Software on a hard disk or other storage devices for the purposes of permanent installation, and make backup copies of the Software. A special license for use on multiple systems in the context of a classroom training environment may be provided by prior written permission from the United Bible Societies (contact ptregadmin at
