Editing USFM with Word and surviving


If you edit an USFM file with Word and want to use it in translationCore (or another USFM program), you need to first save as a “.txt” file. Word will give a popup warning that you may lose formatting. At this point you want to change from the default encoding. Select “other encoding” and then select “Unicode (UTF-8)“ and then save.
