John 15:26-27 ALT (26) "But when the Counselor [or, Helper] comes, whom _I_ will send to you* from the Father, the Spirit of the truth, who proceeds from the Father, that One will testify concerning Me. (27) "And you* also testify [or, be testifying], because you* are with Me from the beginning.

John 15:26-27 NWT 26 When the helper arrives that I will send you from the Father, the spirit of the truth, which proceeds from the Father, that one will bear witness about me; 27 and you, in turn, are to bear witness, because you have been with me from when I began.

John 15:26-27 GNB (26) "The Helper will come---the Spirit, who reveals the truth about God and who comes from the Father. I will send him to you from the Father, and he will speak about me. (27) And you, too, will speak about me, because you have been with me from the very beginning.

           Jesus was here speaking to persons who already had the gift of holy spirit to raise the dead and heal the sick. He was making clear the holy spirit he would send would impact them [and others] in a new and different way. The spirit of truth would help them remember and apply what Jesus had taught them. That is the gift of holy spirit which remains for our day. (John 14:15-16)

You will note the reference windows often include more than one translation of the Bible. The reason is to strive to gain the best possible understanding of the original Hebrew and Greek. Since we don't speak those languages, we rely on those who have come before and made the effort to translate those texts into English for us. Considering several translations gives the benefit of the understanding of several translation committees or individuals.
