Admittedly, that's a question that has always concerned me, but every company
I've ever worked for translated documents with the greatest of reluctance, and
once they did the first pass it was like pulling teeth just getting them to keep up
with the changes to the English version. In 10 years the issue has never come

I'd think that separate revision paths and tracking for each language is the way

to revise a translation because of a translation error or modify it because of
localisation issues? Will you increment the original even if there was no change
to keep the versions equal?
