In the early 1980s Zondervan printed an
NIV TRIGOT OLD TESTAMENT by John Kohlenberger which contained 
3 parallel translations of the OT

Hebrew text
LXX text
NIV English text

See if you can find one since it would probably
be the closest thing to an interlinear.

I have been looking for such an item for some years, too.  I have
explained to my students that in a sense the Septuagint is an
Hellenistic bridge between the Greek NT and Hebrew OT. So at times some
members of our group here in NT studies would find such an interlinear
helpful in examining the LXX.  

Brenton's does not "fit the bill" and is too dated.  I know of IOSCS's
NETS with http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/nets/ [and their plans for a LXX
commentary http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/ioscs/commentary/] and of the
Orthodox scholars group's OSB-OT with http://www.lxx.org/work_d1.htm.
It has been over 150 years since any wide publication of an English
translation of the LXX...until these two.  The next logical step after
this would be a Greek/English interlinear LXX.

Hi friends,
can anyone recommend any interlinear Greek -literal English SEPTUAGINT
available in hard copy or as file?

All the best,
