In the Techwr-l digest I got this morning, you asked which format you
should use to send your documents to the translation company. That's easy:
Ask them what formats they accept. If they don't include .FM or .MIF in the
list of acceptable formats, explain to your management that there are many
translation/localization firms that accept native FrameMaker files, and
that it will be less expensive in the long term to work with one of those

If you need the name of a localization company that accepts FrameMaker
files, write me off-list and I'll be happy to recommend the companies we've
used in the past.
