The Conservative text of the RA (Rabbinical Assembly) includes the Lieberman Clause (embedded in the Aramaic text), which serves as a deterrent to the issue of agunot. The Aramaic Conservative text is always a constant but, we offer a variety of English texts which serve, essentially, as a codicil.
The Orthodox texts we offer include that of the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA), the United Synagogue of London and the Chabad–all in Aramaic only.
