Now that the online help system is part
of the application, our customers may want to translate the online help.
While the customer is responsible for the translating, we want to make it as
easy as possible.

This is a new arena for me.

Has anyone encountered this kind of problem before? What was your solution?
Do you know of any good resources for writing international documentation?

If at all possible so arrange matters that users can have a choice of
languages. i.e. the German, French, Urdu, or whatever help shouldn't
overwrite the original language (?English).
