    If anyone is planning to start work on converting the Portuguese (Brazilian) Bible to Go Bible, please leave a message here.
    Our church has good personal contacts with the Anglican Church in Recife, Brasil, which is an Evangelical Province.

    Hi David,

    There is a Portuguese version of Go Bible available on the website and a number of Brazilians have emailed to say they are using it. However, the user interface is currently still in English.

    There are subtle differences between Portuguese in Portugal and Brazilian Portuguese.
    I guess these are a bit like the differences between English and American English, or between Flemish & Dutch???
    • CommentTimeMay 10th 2007 edited
    Yes I guess there would be. However, I haven't had any complaints about the translation so I have a feeling it is a translation they are familiar with. It's possible that it's an old translation like the KJV. Even though we don't speak KJV language in everday English we can still understand it.

    We have not yet made any other Portuguese Go Bible versions based on the Brasilian Portuguese bible modules available with other Bible software applications.

    We always appreciate offers of help in translating the user interface. The Portuguese Go Bible available in the Go Bible site still has an English UI.

    If you'd like to join the Go Bible Google Group, click on the link in my forum profile (click my initials DFH to get there), and send me a request.

    • CommentAuthorDFH
    • CommentTimeAug 29th 2007
    Haven't begun to look at the PDB format used by these other applications, but the list of available translations is mostly now very familiar.
    It is most likely that they were converted from electronic textual sources we already have access to in various ways.

    However, the reminder that we must respect copyrights should be borne in mind, so we don't intend to distribute any Go Bible's for which permission has not been granted or that are not based on public domain works. That will certainly rule out doing any that require paying a license fee or royalty payment.

    A pastor has contacted me about an error in the PJFA (Portuguese) translation: In Phi 1:11

    cheios do fruto de INJUSTIÇA, que vem por meio de Jesus Cristo, para glória e louvor de Deus.

    the right would be:

    cheios do fruto de JUSTIÇA, que vem por meio de Jesus Cristo, para glória e louvor de Deus.

    INJUSTIÇA (unrighteousness) means the antonym of JUSTIÇA (righteousness)


    A person also contacted me about errors in 1Co5:1 .

    Thanks for reporting these.

    Many of the on-line or downloadable Portuguese Bibles found on various websites around the world have numerous errors.
    Most of them are in breach of copyright. The situation is a complete mess!
    Some of them even claim to be a Portuguese translation that never existed in printed form.

    My own view is that Jolon should remove the Portuguese Go Bible from the main Go Bible site,
    until we have a better (more accurate) source text and have obtained written permissions from the publisher.

    Erro/ tranlater

    Dear brother, I thank you for this wonderful program Go Bible, I am Brazilian and I am a long time user of this program.
    I tell a small error in the content of the Bible in Portuguese, in the Psalms chapter 86 verse 10 is missing, in its place is the verse 11 and verse 12 repeats the verse 13.

    "Salmos 86:10-13
    10 Ensina-me, Senhor, o teu caminho, e andarei na tua verdade;
    dispõe o meu coração para temer o teu nome.
    11 Louvar-te-ei, Senhor Deus meu, de todo o meu coração, e
    glorificarei o teu nome para sempre.
    12 Pois grande é a tua benignidade para comigo, e livraste
    a minha alma das profundezas do Seol.
    13 Pois grande é a tua benignidade para comigo, e livraste
    a minha alma das profundezas do Seol."

    Psalms 86:10 "Pois Tu és grande e operas maravilhas; só tu és Deus."

    I have a Motorola V3X and the program works very well, I translate the menus were in English to Portuguese and I am sending the file "" translated into Portuguese.

    Thank you, Pastor Charles, for providing the UI translation and for reporting the source text errors.
    For the latter we are not in a position to make the individual detail corrections.

    The official policy in such circumstances is to obtain a better (more accurate) and complete source text file from the publisher,
    and at the same time to request the permissions for distribution.

    We would rather withdraw the Go Bible version containing textual errors than allow it to be distributed.
    However, as I am not the webmaster for Go Bible main site, I can only put this as a strong recommendation.

    The difficulty is compounded by the lack of provenance for the Portuguese Go Bible's source text file. See
    for the meaning and use of this word.

    We recently had news from Brazil about another new translation initiative. See

    Google translates the top of the home page thus: (amended manually to correct significant errors by Google's translation engine !)

    Free Bible

    This is a project to give any person a translation of the Holy Bible in an entirely free. That is, you can copy to your computer, print, distribute to others, use of fully or partially, including material for profit.

    Most of currently used translations of the Bible in Portuguese are copyrighted, that is, you must pay for its use. Usually they allow a restricted use, such as 500 verses, or other rules, but we prefer to provide the Holy Scriptures without any cost. There are other versions in the public domain, as the first versions of the João Ferreira de Almeida, the Father Antonio Pereira de Figueiredo, and the Tradução Brasileira. But they are old, and therefore have a vocabulary that may seem strange to our age.

    Free Bible will be produced through the following process:

    * Check the text of João Ferreira de Almeida in 1819, in the public domain.
    * Update vocabulary, replacing old words for equivalent forms.
    * Change the order of words for a more common Portuguese, without altering the original meaning of the text.
    * Editing, compared with the original language, and possibly also with other translations, such as the King James Version, the Reina-Valera or the Young Literal Translation.
    * Second stage of review, deeper, comparing again with versions in the original languages. At this point, it is possible to be made more than one version.

    Moreover, it is very important to involve the Internet, reviewing the text and suggesting improvements or corrections. I appreciate any help.

    So far the work is still in the beginning. Even the full texts are can be modified over time.

    The PorAR text includes a few unexpected characters, some of which may be typos. Example:

    I Samuel 3:13: Porque já lhe disse que julgarei a sua casa para sempre, pela iniqüidade que ele bem conhecia, porque seus filhos se fizeram execráveis, e ele os não repreendeu.

    The word iniqüidade should be iniquidade.
