Learning the translationCore software
Aligning the English text of the ULT with the unfoldingWord Hebrew Bible (UHB).
Expanded Description: The Text Aligner for the unfoldingWord Literal Text (ULT) will use the translationCore software to align the English text of the ULT with the unfoldingWord Hebrew Bible (UHB). Ideally, there would be one English word aligned with each Hebrew word. Of course, this is not possible, because languages work very differently from each other. Therefore, the Text Aligner will align words or phrases in the ULT with words or phrases in the Hebrew that differ in the number of words, order of words, and parts of speech. Always, however, the Aligner will align the English words to the Hebrew words whose meaning they express, in whatever combination is necessary to produce the most accurate alignment of the meaning. These alignments will be used to enable various translation helps in the Bible translation software.
