in-house/international translation HELP PLEASE

Hi all,
I’m an in-house designer for a company that is using dealers to sells its products overseas in tons of different countries. I have printed materials on our products and need to get them translated in german, italian, japaneese, all kinds of different languages. I’m working to try and enable our reps to translate directly on the layouts we already have in place for our domestic flyers. Does anyone have any experience in doing something like this??? I was thinking about making PDFs that are editable in reader (which I think acrobat professional 7.0 can do) But I am really having some trouble getting my head around this. will the fonts translate, or will they be embedded or something… I have no idea. Any suggestions?
