To get his/her text translated into one or several languages, the writer would accept to cooperate with the system in order to standardize and clarify his/her document. There are many interesting aspects in the design of such a system. The paper briefly presents some of them (HyperText, distributed architecture, guided language, hybrid transfer/interlingua, the goes on to study in more detail the structure of the dialogue with the writer and the place of speech synthesis [1].
