Editing USFM with Word and surviving


#1

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.
