NATIONAL BIBLE SOCIETY OF SCOTLAND USES WORD PROCESSOR BUT STICKS TO TRADITION!

It might sound enough to cause a gathering of the clans, a skirl of the pipes and a clash of the claymore – the National Bible Society of Scotland is using a word processor to do a complete revision of the spelling in the 1801 translation of the Bible into Gaelic and feed it into a phototypesetter – but the Presbyterians can sleep sound in their beds: reverence to tradition and the old methods is being retained – all the work is being done on an Amstrad PCW8256, based on a traditional Z80 8-bit processor and running those two venerable pieces of software that reach right back into the dawn of history – CP/M and WordStar.
