Ah, I see what you're asking now. You should send translators DITA files in the original langauge, and have the translator send you back DITA files in the target language. Don't send them WebHelp files containing your content.

There is only one file which contains the text used in buttons and tab names for WebHelp, described here: http://forums.xmetal.com/index.php/topic,951.0.html . That is the only non-DITA file which you should send for translation.

After the translator sends you DITA files in the target language, generate WebHelp using your own machines.
