As you are using RH9 you could use the Dynamic User Centric Control (DUCC) facility. This would allow you to generate a single help file and allow the user to select from a drop down the language they want to see inside the help. The option chosen in effect filters the output that is displayed. From your perspective, this works in much the same way as conditional text. Check out the link below for a good tour of the features inside RH9 included DUCC.

Great! That was a big step forward. Thanks a lot!
I defined 6 condition Tags (one for each language) and the DUCC works fine.
Just one more question:
German is my <default> language. But I want (e.g.) the english users to see the english version as default.
Is it possible to call the WebHelp with a special condition-tag-parameter? And what is the name of this paramter?
I would like to set the default language dynamically. The country code of the calling URL shall be passed as a parameter tp the WebHelp:
The user is on a page like
and is calling the WebHelp from that page. In the first case, I want the user to see the German Help as default. In the second case I want the English Help as default. Best solution would be something like:
It would be easy to read the country code from the calling URL an pass it to the WebHelp. But I dont know, if there is such a parameter or what it is called? In my opinion there must be a parameter that is passed when switching the content categories from inside the WebHelp and it must be possible to set this paramter not before calling the WebHelp
Just wondering if you got a good answer from RH developers on your question from June 2011 about how to pass a language parameter to help dynamically before the app opens Help?
I have a multi-media project with context-sensitive help and need to pass a similar kind of parameter to tell Help which media build (created with DUCC) to open for the user.
