I would always release the translated manual with the same
revision ID as the original its content corresponds to, and
do whatever manipulations of the release system are needed
(i.e., releasing a Korean "A" and "B" that are identical to
the "C" and then obsoleting them) in order to do it. That
way, users from different countries would always be working
to the same rev letter.

Dear listmembers,

Here's a conundrum I would appreciate some input about.

The hardware products for which I write operators' manuals go through many
stages of development after they have been officially released to the
public. We usually avoid to translate a manual for a new product into other
languages until some time after the introduction since the introduction
gives us valueable feedback. This means that a Rev. C of an English manual
may be identical to a Rev. A of a Korean manual.
