I am responsible for source files in English and distribute these to 5
translators abroad who are to make localized versions.

Now the local markets want market-specific documentation in our so far
standard manuals.

To maintain one source you could have the language-specific sections
conditionalised in the english source. This means that you produce
"paper and English", "paper and German" etc.

I don't think this works for whole chapters though. In this case you
will have to have language specific books.

How do you handle this issue?

Med venlig hilsen - Best regards
