Parallel text for a bilingual book
« on: October 02, 2016, 06:59:44 pm »
Hi. I'm new to formatting and editing.

I have a question, and I've looked everywhere, in this forum, in the subreddit, all across google, and I haven't found the answer to my question. It should be an easy one:

I'm translating a book and I want to format it like a typical academic translation, with the original text on the right -even pages- and the translated text on the left -odd pages-. It's supposed to be simple enough, but I'm loosing my mind over trying to figure it out. Does anybody know how to do this?

Thank you very much in advanced.

I would just link the text frames on odd pages to one chain and the text frames on even pages to another chain.
