DEMCS™ Branches, Stems, & Leaves Metaphor


Finally, we need to incorporate different languages into the system. Each different language can be represented as a differently colored stem at the end of a branch. This gives us a multi-colored tree.

Diagram with different colored sets of leaves on matching stems.

This is not the same as using a different stem for a different topic on the same branch. Each differently colored stem covers the exact same topic, just in a different language. This does not mean all of the content will be the same for each language. Some things won't be translated into all languages and some people in some countries will think of better ways to explain things in their specific language that just won't be applicable to other languages. As long as all the content for a given topic covers only that specific topic regardless of the language, then everything will work out.
