Our Projects

Most of the work that we do is geared to a specific service but some of our work has taken on something of a life of its own and may best be described as an ongoing project. Click on the tabs below to find out more about three of our biggest areas of service.

Bible For The Future

This project arose out of our concern that, if digital information is not properly preserved, it could easily disappear. A great many important data files have been stored on media and in file formats that are now redundant and no longer supported. This is particularly true of Scripture that has been transcribed, or 'keyboarded', into a digital format, used in the preparation of a particular translation, and then filed away in its original format rather than being stored in a server online.

Tapes, floppy disks and even memory sticks do not last for ever, and file formats change even more quickly. For example, "Locoscript" was a popular word-processing application for a while in the early days of computing, but how many people would be able to access content in that format today?
