I want to make a textbook translation, with each page showing German on the left, and English on the right.
Is there a way to create two independent parallel columns that will flow from page to page? This is different from ‘newspaper columns’ that flow from the left column into the right column.
Parallel columns would also be useful if you were creating a text that has the main text in the left hand column and commentary notes in the right hand column.
Similar questions have been asked here in the past:
The previous answers usually advise setting up a two-column table. However, many years ago WordPerfect had a proper parallel column function, and maybe by now one has been developed for LibreOffice?
