Dear List,

I've made 2 mistakes : 
1) a false link to a PDF text;
2) Giving a large PDF text.
There is the link to Petr Březina paper on TeX and bilingual editions, that 
I've previously mentionned :
http://mujweb.cz/petr-brezina/libelli/bilingue.pdf

Certainly, as Wolfgang put it, there is probably some ways to achieve the goal 
mentionned in the title of this thread : 2 parallel texts synchronized on the 
same page, in 2 different languages. Maybe through the "stream" macros.

Dear List,
I fear I made a mistake with this paper's address : 
https://zimbra.free.fr/service/home/~/bilingue.pdf?auth=co&loc=fr&id=253997&part=2
Please, read it as attached file.
Best,
JP

Hi Arthur, Hans, Pablo and other brave ConteXT users !

The only development I've found on the subject matter of this thread is from 
Petr Březina (but in French), with some examples of historical printing 
material (like Novum Testamentum Graece et Latine and M. Tullius Cicero, Pro A. 
Licinio Archia poeta oratio. Rede für den Dichter A. Licinius Archias. 
Lateinisch / Deutsch. Übersetzt und herausgegeben von Otto Schönberger, 
bibliographisch ergänzte Ausgabe 1990, printed in Germany 1996, Reclam, 
Stuttgart, ISBN 3-15-001268-6.

Petr Březina works with pure TeX, in order to imitate F. Didot in printing a 
bilingual text on 2 parallel paragraphs (see "Tâche n° 4", within his test, 
page 12).
At the end of this file, there are some examples (see specially pages 26,27,28)

  That’s not what I meant.  There is an experimental mechanism in
ConTeXt called streams that could be part of the solution to your
problem, but there are no publicly available documents that make use of
it.  The commands for creating and managing streams are in the file
page-str.mkiv; there are short examples at the end.

  I mention this because this is typically the kind of issue that need
serious input from users in order to become a meaningful feature.

        Best,

                Arthur
