I can't speak to Coptic, but Latin doesn't have a definite article.
Consequently, the Vulgate reads:
in principio erat Verbum et Verbum erat apud Deum et Deus erat Verbum.
"Deus" is capitalized in the version I have, but I don't know if that
reflects the earliest manuscripts (or even what the significance of a
capitalized "Deus" would have been); or whether that reflects more on
Jerome's grammatical or theological sensibilities.
