HelpTransl8 is a tool for document translators

Origin of development and its response

The main problem when documentation is translated is maintenance. The original documentation (often in english) evolves. So how do we locate between the version we translated and the latest version?

HelpTransl8 is an answer to this question: each file of the original documentation is kept in a hidden file with the same name. Thus, when updating HelpTransl8 compares the new file with the old one. If the new file is different then it replaces the hidden file and informs the user in a TODO list. If the file does not exist, it is created with its original version!
