Choosing the right download package

There are several installation packages for Pathway. Here are some notes to help determine which is the right one to download for your specific environment:

Paratext 7.x

For Paratext versions 7.1 and 7.2 (currently in beta), you will need to install the BTE version of SIL Pathway.

FieldWorks

SIL FieldWorks is available in two editions – Standard Edition (SE) and Bible Translation Edition (BTE):

  • FieldWorks SE comes with the FieldWorks Language Explorer program and several helpful utilities for scheduling backups, editing Unicode, etc. If you have this version installed, you will need to install the SE version of SIL Pathway.
  • FieldWorks BTE comes with these tools as well as the Translation Editor program. If you have this version installed, you will need to install the BTE version of SIL Pathway.

Helpful tip: if you have the FieldWorks Translation Editor installed on your computer, you have installed FieldWorks BTE.

Experimental Version

You can also download a version of Pathway that contains test exports for XeTeX, WordPress and PDF (via Prince XML). Download this version only if you are using these exports.
