Open Source Translation Informatin In general

Timchambers
Figure that this thread can cover other public domain resources that might help us....

The first example:

Curious: since January, works from 1923 became public domain, I wonder if there are any good Old Testament or New Testament translation work that we can benefit from?

Here is one possible example I found:

The New Testament : an American translation
Author: Edgar J Goodspeed
Publisher: Chicago, Ill. : University of Chicago Press, 1923.

https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015066434781;view=1up;seq=4

Or: http://rcbi-resources.yolasite.com/resources/New%20Testament%20American%20Translation.pdf

Here was his bio: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edgar_J._Goodspeed

And more info here: http://www.bible-researcher.com/goodspeed.html

And it seems an Old Testament version of the "American Translation" version was here. This was published in 1927, but we should check as it may be public domain.

Press, 1923.

Old Testament, 1927. J.M. Powis Smith, ed., The Old Testament: An American Translation. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1927.
