I'm quite new to indesign so please forgive me if the title makes no sense or if the following terminology is wrong or if the whole question just plain sucks.
I have two text files, one in English and one in another language. I would like to create an indesign document such that the English text is always on the left, no matter how I might mess around with it, and the translation is always on the right. Basically I want to line up each line of text from both languages when viewed as a two-page spread, and ensure that the text from one language won't 'spill over' onto the wrong side. Like, when I increase the font size or spacing on one side, I would like the text to overflow on the correct side.
I hope that makes sense to someone. Thanks for reading and bring on those 'minus one' votes!
