Does anyone have any suggestions on how to handle page layout for a
software manual in English, French, and Spanish? I have done the
two-language-saddle-stitched-flip-it-over-and-read-it-in-Spanish thang
before, but never three languages.

Any hints? Is the simplest/best way to have the translations appear one
after another, front to back? If so, should I start page numbering over
with the beginning of each language?

TIA,

Jim Van Winkle


Depending on the length of the manual, you can break it into sections
with each language in its entirety. That seems to work ok.
