    How to link text files in Indesign

    eva_d

      Hi,

      I want to translate the text I have in an Indesign file, but since I've seen it's quite tricky to export the text in Indesign into an Excel or Word and then, import this translated text back into de indesign file, I saw there is the possibility to link text files into Indesign, so if the text changes in the word or excel file, it also changes in the Indesign file.

      Also, we have many text boxes in a single page. Is it necessary to have a different document for each text box, or can the text from a file be linked by pragraphs to different indesign text boxes?

      Thank you very much for your help.
