If you do anything with translation of English documentation to another language (the software and my manual are going to be translated into French, Italian, German), this question is for you. Say you find a time machine and you can take the knowledge you have now and go back in time to the day on which you were told you would need to translate your manual (mine is 174 pages) and all of its graphics (mine has 569 links - using InDesign) to those other languages. What would you tell yourself regarding capturing graphics in a non-English language?
