Dear Pere,

I don't know of an online translation of Judith into Hebrew. The two printed 
translations that I know of (I'm sure that there are others) are by M. 
Simon, in the second volume of the Hebrew Apocrypha edited by A. Kahana from 
1956 and that of Y.M. Grintz from 1957. But why read a translation into 
Hebrew, and not into your own language?
