Writing ABAP for Translating - Best Practice

Hi Folks,

I want to setup some guidelines in my team for writing good code\forms to allow for translations as our project rolls on to non-English speaking countries.

I am looking for a document that gives good examples for best coding practice when it comes to translations, for example, when writing messages to the screen use:

'This is the text'(001) or text-001 instead of just writing 'This is the text'

I have searched the net but I can't see any quick useful guides that I could hand to my team. Does anyone know of any guides that might be worthwhile?

Thanks,

Colm

I've taken my reply and expanded it into a blog; Don't get lost in translation

I don't however tackle the controversial topic of 'This is a text'(001) vs. text-001.
