I strongly support this, since I have a lot of files with side-by-side content. The first question is of course how does the org source look like. In my case, I have simply separated the columns by a <tab> character and set the tab-width to a sensible value for nice on-screen display. These are 'text' and 'translation of that text' side-by-side, sometimes interrupted by section headers, notes and so on. Therefore I end up with multiple 'tables', which will need to have the same width throughout the document. Therefore for this use-case, I would like to see a global setting for the relative width of these columns.

All the best,
