What is Paratext Lite?
Paratext Lite is intended to be a companion to Paratext that runs on an Android tablet or phone. It does not have the full capabilities of Paratext, but enables some translation tasks to be done on smaller, more portable devices. A Paratext Lite user can get the latest copy of the text via send/receive, and travel to remote areas with the tablet or phone to read the Scriptures to others and to enter their feedback as project notes.
Simple editing of the text (like the Basic View in Paratext) is also possible. Resource texts can be downloaded to Paratext Lite and the app can display up to four different projects or resources at once.
Paratext Lite is not a replacement for the full version of Paratext. Instead, its goal is to expand the size of the translation team for tasks such as reading, reviewing, and revising of the text, or even for the purpose of creating a back-translation. It can also be helpful where the use of a computer in parts of the language area may be inconvenient or impractical.
