Subject: FW: [dita-translation] Groups - Best Practice for using Conrefsfor Translation (Best Practices Conref.pdf) uploaded

Thank You.

I feel the siutaiotn with conrefs is essentially the same as those concerning tokens,concatenation or entities (i.e., this is not essentially a DITA issue. I have a couple of concerns with this one:

A) Never user confref to substitute nouns or phrases.... OK, but the problem is exacerbated when nouns and verbs are in the same sentence and flexing is required. So perhaps this should say never use conref to substitute nouns that are translated or verbs. Some nouns may not be translated - for example system names, table names, userids, environment variables.

B) Proper Nouns may also require translation, so A) applies. For example, product names are translated, but not only that, as flexed - for example, I believe in Hebrew.
