Reply to: How Do Translation Editors Work With My Finished Deliverable?

Thanks for the reply, but I'm not sure you understand my question, or more likely, I don't understand your answer. I'm trying to learn what a translator does when they get a web help file. Are you tell me that a translator will open each file (presumably in an XML editor) to replace the English text? Or would they translate from the HTML? It seems to me that if they used the XML, they would have to generate the output.

I'm sorry if I'm being difficult on this, but I just don't want my boss to get blind-sided because I gave him misinformation. We're working for an international company, so I'm sure this project will get translated. My boss wants to know how the process works, i.e., the work-flow, and he's looking to me to inform him (he wouldn't take “I don't know' for an answer).
