Writer: how can I synchronise scroll between 2 document windows?

I frequently have to translate documents from one language to another. A convenient way to do this is to display the original and translated documents parallel on screen (even if the translated document is initially a copy of the original document).

It would be very nice and comfortable if both windows could scroll (at least vertically only) simultaneously when one of the (vertical) scroll bars is activated. This would avoid extra manual manipulations (going to the other window, scrolling, going back to the first window, clicking to restore focus).

Of course, you sometimes need to scroll a window on its own because language expansion ratios are not the same.

Is there a simple way to force scrolling from a "master" window to a "slave" window?
