What is wrong with the Bauscher codes?
Shlama ahi,
Please understand that Roth's decision to switch to the Asshuri script was by no means an easy decision for him. He found the preservation of the Estrangelo script valuable, which is why the first 2 editions used it. There were many requests that he switch to Asshuri script for accessibility to a larger crowd who could already read it.
His use of Elohim instead of Alaha is because he does not see 'God' as a fit translation of Alef-Lamed-Heh. Consider that he made Elohim into an English loan-word, thus translating Alaha into English as Elohim.
Also I think his decision to translate zqifa as stake is due to its literal meaning, not to the detriment of understanding the stake being referred to as a cross. His decision was probably influenced by how cross made its way into Greek translations from the Vulgate, though the Greek also reads as stake.

I hope I've eased some of your gripes toward his translation <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
I also have my own gripes and preferences here.
