    I will like that somebody that have the knowledge in the developing of Go Bibles, can help with the Papiamento version of the Bible (Papiamento is a language spoken on the Caribbean islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. I have the bible in PDF format (can convert them to Microsoft Word if required). But I don't know how to convert them into a Go Bible application. Please contact me if any of you is willing to help me.

    Please contact me - but first prepare by determining who owns the copyright for this translation.
    We would need to establish permissions before we can distribute them as Go Bible applications.

    2 Manera qu esnan, quende di principi a mira e cosnan cu nan wowo y qu tawata ministronan di palaba, a entrega nos:
    3 Asina mi tambe a haya bon, despues di a inbestiga tur cos fo'i principio cu hopi cuidao, di scirbi esaqui pa bo, o haltisimo

    The font may be customized, even though it is CourierStd.
    The circumflex character is displayed as a different item of punctuation.
