I am new to this. Apologize in advance if this has already been answered.
On a page set for translating text in two languages, there is a way to stop the flow from left column to right column.

There was an old way to do this in Word Perfect, and after the setup worked, all you had to do was press Control + something else to goggle between columns.

The idea is to keep paragraphs independently (since usually text in one language does not match the word count in the other language) and dedicate a column to each language, without column flow from one to the other.

I would appreciate your help on this.

Don't use columns, use a 2 column table.
