Where are the translations for a form stored?

I know that you can export the translations to .sil file, but in a delphi project where are the translations stored.

Are there any implications when multi users are all working in the same project

Translations are stored in DFM as TsiLang property so you can work with your forms as usual.

following on from this, can you explain to me where this then fits with the sil/sib file? Does it mean there are two copies of the translation, one in the DFM and the other in the external file?

Once again, appologies if this is a simple newbie question.

Yes, if you use SIB files then the translations are in DFMs and in SIB. When you load SIB the translations stored in DFM overwritten. If you wish to keep empty DFMs (we don't recommend this!) you can just Clear translations right before the release build. But be sure to load them back from SIB when you continue your development.
