Topics included the dangers of composing sentences in content using scripting, strategies for designing layout so that text expansion during translation will not destroy your efforts, strategies for navigating localized content, and the separation of content and presentation. It explored some of the potential difficulties that can be encountered in these areas and recommended some best practices to help you avoid them.
