The LaTeX parallel package
Version: 5.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word
The parallel package creates an environment that aligns text in two columns or on facing pages.
You can adjust the column width and separate the columns with a vertical line. Options are available to format footnotes that occur in the text within the environment; the footnotes are typeset at the end of the environment.
After adding the package, you enter the environment and all the text within it in TeX fields in the body of your document. The package is useful for comparing two texts, as in translation projects.
Note that a blank page can result if LaTeX has to skip a page in order to place the parallel text on facing pages. Also, large size differences in the right and left text can result in unattractive output.
The package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/contrib/parallel directory.
