Translate the Bible (& Other Books) with a Tap in Logos 10

One of history’s most accomplished polyglots, Harold Williams, could speak fifty-eight languages and read the Bible in twenty-six.1

While we can’t all be like Harold Williams, we can do the next best thing: translate—with just a click or tap—from inside Logos 10. In a moment, we can shatter the barrier to works from authors around the globe and throughout church history. All it takes is a Wi-Fi connection.

Even works written in one language, like Charles Hodge’s Systematic Theology, often contain another language (in this case, Latin). Instead of skipping those passages, you can finally translate and read them without needing to go outside Logos to another translation service.

Right now, the 100+ language options start with Afrikaans and end with Zulu. 

Note: Auto translation isn’t available from modern Greek or from other ancient languages such as Greek, Aramaic, Coptic, and Syriac. (But you can translate any language to modern Greek.)
