Thanks Frank,

I will do it as you suggested; per chapter a page. This allows for a more coherent translation style per chapter as a fringe benefit. Hopefully throwing many eyeballs at the book bugs this way will get things done quickly and thoroughly.
Best regs, Marc

  I'm afraid I'm not the most savvy wiki guy either!  But I would like
  to advise against doing it exactly this way.  In my opinion boxes add a lot
  of extra structure cruft in the wiki text making it quite a bit hard for
  people to drop in and edit bits.
  If you wanted an example of boxes, you could look at the main page which
  Markus has invested the time in "boxing" to get a nice structure.  But it
  does make editing somewhat harder.
  I would suggest just creating two pages - one in English and one in Dutch -
  for each major section (perhaps Chapter?) and try to ensure that the
  subsection titles are easily related.  Then folks can put two browser windows
  side by side and edit as needed.
  I'm looking forward to the translation of your document!
