Are your customers end-users or resellers?
There isn't much in your note to go from. I have only encountered something like this once before, for a database product. We provided translations in a range of languages and made the content available as a text file to customers who wished to translate in unsupported languages. Generally, these customers were resellers and were both technically able and motivated to do a good job.
It's true that handing over Frame files may not be the best way to transmit the original content.


Let us overthrow the totems, break the taboos. Or better, let us consider them cancelled. Coldly, let us be intelligent.
