OET Conventional Edition

The Conventional Edition is an alternative edition of the OET and is derived from the Explorers’ Edition (the one that is displayed in the Reader). This edition is aimed at more conservative readers who don’t want their Bible reading to be distracted by different book orders or by finding non-conventional names or key phrases in the text.

The OET Literal Version remains the same in all current editions (and uses transliterated names as all good highly-literal versions should).

Technical readers might be interested to know that we developed the Scripted Bible Editor specifically for being able to derive one Bible version from another by a series of scripted changes stored in TSV tables. So it’s only one computer command for us to create the Conventional Edition from the Explorers’ Edition. (The Scripted Bible Editor is also used to help create the OET Literal Version from the Greek.)
