You had better ask each one of them. Of course there are likely to be 
many which translate from whichever of the two is most appropriate for 
each individual project, or from eclectic mixes of the two chosen on 
careful text critical grounds. And sadly there are some which translate 
from neither because they translate only the New Testament.
