If I am given the words and the clues, I can produce a crossword
puzzle as a Word doc. Doesn't matter if the words are in different
languages so long as the alphabet is the same. Could put the
appropriate conlang name in quotes as part of the clue, to avoid
things being thrown through the window (e.g. the crossword editor) by
irate puzzle fans.
The more words available, the easier to produce a nice, tight puzzle,
though some words might not fit.
Haven't tried it with publishing deadlines yet, so don't know what
lead time is required.
God bless you all always, all ways,
