Hello TechWhirlers,

Please share your thoughts/experience/suggestions on this:

How does one manage translation of a CHM into multiple languages?

I have finished documenting in English, a software app. using RH x5.0. I developed the content (or at least did most formatting of content) directly on the pages in the RH project.

This app. is going to be made available in many languages.

I was just wondering,

How (or in what form) is a CHM sent for translation?

How is the compilation in each language done?

Thank you,

Suresh KV
