Do you have any improvements for my directory structure for manuals to
translate into several languages:

- Graphics (corporate)
- Text insets (corporate)
- Product 1
-  - Product 1, release xx
- - - Product 1, User manual
- - - - Product 1, user manual, fm files
- - - - Product 1, User manual, pdf files
- - - Graphics (the ones to be localised with a T in front of the name)
- - - Text insets

The idea is that you copy the "Product 1, User manual" folder to the
language folder to be translated. 
You copy changed graphics and text insets to the corresponding folders
in the other language folder.

The "Text insets" and "Graphics" folders are presently common to the
whole release and contain files that are used in several manuals. Some,
but not many of them single-sourced between for example the user manual
and the setup manual.

"Graphics (corporate)" could actually be above the language folder as
they are common to all languages. The folder contains logos, IVD symbol,
CE mark etc.

The "Text insets (corporate)" folder contains language-specific
corporate text-insets like Warranty, Disclaimer, end user license.

Currently I am considering whether I should move the Graphics and "Text
insets" folders under each type of manual, i.e one graphics folder for
the user manual and one for the setup manual. 

Also I have a problem with the two corporate folders as I have to
manully point at files located at the higher levels after I have moved
the files to the other language folder.

I am looking forward to hearing about your directory structure.
