I'm using the packages parcolumns and parcolsx to keep my translation on the outside column of the page (so on even pages it would be on the left and for odd pages on the right)

I'm interested in using the packages reledmac/reledpar for other reasons and I'm wondering if there is a built in way to achieve what I have been achieving with parcolumns/parcolsx

example of what I'm trying to achieve:

           Left hand (even) page      |        Right hand (odd) page
   column 2              column 1     |      column 1              column 2
_translation_  This is the main text  |  This is the main text  _translation_
_translation_  This is the main text  |  This is the main text  _translation_
_translation_  This is the main text  |  This is the main text  _translation_
_translation_  This is the main text  |  This is the main text  _translation_
_translation_  This is the main text  |  This is the main text  _translation_
_translation_  This is the main text  |  This is the main text  _translation_
_translation_  This is the main text  |  This is the main text  _translation_
_translation_  This is the main text  |  This is the main text  _translation_
_translation_  This is the main text  |  This is the main text  _translation_

instead of:

           Left hand (even) page        |        Right hand (odd) page
     column 1            columm 2       |         column 1          column 2
This is the main text   _translation_   |  This is the main text  _translation_
This is the main text   _translation_   |  This is the main text  _translation_
This is the main text   _translation_   |  This is the main text  _translation_
This is the main text   _translation_   |  This is the main text  _translation_

The new version of reledpar, v2.15.0, just submitted on CTAN, provides a movecolumnspositiononrightpage package option.

Here a MWE

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[series={},nocritical,noend,noeledsec,nofamiliar,noledgroup]{reledmac}
\usepackage[movecolumnspositiononrightpage]{reledpar}
\setlength{\columnrulewidth}{0.4pt}

This file shows an example of the \verb+movecolumnspositiononrightpage+ option in action. This option allows to have inside and outside columns, rather than left and right columns.
