Hi All,

One of the requirements of a documentation set that i am planning at the
moment is that the documentation is easy to translate into languages other
than English. I've read about "restricted grammars" - limited
sets of usable words - that can be used to aid this process.

Please email me if you have:

- knowledge about restricted grammars (not sure about the term)
- an example restricted grammar or pointer to one
- any tips about preparing doco for translation
- translated documention before and can list things that would make your
job easier.

I will collect responses and post them back to the list.
