    Multiple language workflow

    mdohse81

      I have several projects in RoboHelp 11 that are complete in English, but now we are translating the content. I have read through the multiple language workflow instructions in the help, but I can't seem to interpret what they are saying. This step from the help files is very difficult to follow:

       

      1. Open an English topic, create a topic for the French language, and translate the content, including the topic title from English to French. (Do not translate topic filenames.)

      It is not possible to have two topics in the same project with the same filename...how would this even work? Do I need to create separate folders for topics for each language? I currently have topic htm files and table of contents translated for the project I'm working on, but I just don't know what to do with them now. I have been scouring the internet and these forums, but everytime I think I find something worthwhile, it's a dead link. I just want to know what the basic workflow is for adding topic files for other languages and generating output. If anyone can help that would be fantastic!


      Thanks,
