Hi Arthur, Hans, Pablo and other brave ConteXT users !

The only development I've found on the subject matter of this thread is from Petr Březina (but in French), with some examples of historical printing material (like Novum Testamentum Graece et Latine and M. Tullius Cicero, Pro A. Licinio Archia poeta oratio. Rede für den Dichter A. Licinius Archias. Lateinisch / Deutsch. Übersetzt und herausgegeben von Otto Schönberger, bibliographisch ergänzte Ausgabe 1990, printed in Germany 1996, Reclam, Stuttgart, ISBN 3-15-001268-6.

Petr Březina works with pure TeX, in order to imitate F. Didot in printing a bilingual text on 2 parallel paragraphs (see "Tâche n° 4", within his test, page 12).
At the end of this file, there are some examples (see specially pages 26,27,28) : https://zimbra.free.fr/service/home/~/bilingue.pdf?auth=co&loc=fr&id=253997&part=2

  That’s not what I meant.  There is an experimental mechanism in
ConTeXt called streams that could be part of the solution to your
problem, but there are no publicly available documents that make use of
it.  The commands for creating and managing streams are in the file
page-str.mkiv; there are short examples at the end.

  I mention this because this is typically the kind of issue that need
serious input from users in order to become a meaningful feature.

	Best,
