I have open two Word documents in different languages I need to review, and I want them to scroll up and down at the same time while advancing on any of both. I am working on MS Office 2003.

Can you help me, please?

Use Compare Aug 7, 2008

There's a great way to do it:
Menu / Windows / Compare side by side with...
and you enter the other doc's name.

You may leave them showing side by side, but stop the 'auto scroll' option, using the button on the special toolbar that opens with this function.

Window/align for comparison Aug 7, 2008

Have both documents open with the pages aligned, then choose Window/Align on the toolbar (I don't know if that's the right term in English - in Italian it's Finestra/Affianca per confronto).

HTH

oops, cross-posting with Doron! Great minds...
