Read

There exist a number of comprehensive manuals for Inkscape:

An always up-to-date list is available at the main Inkscape website.

Contribute

  1. Subscribe to the inkscape-docs mailing list
  2. Familiarize yourself with the free manual
  3. Introduce yourself on the list and tell us what you want to do so we can avoid duplicating work
  4. Ask on the list how you can start to contribute.

Here is a hint: we try to use as much content from release notes as possible, since last 5-6 ones were written in a very much verbose way. An old To-Do list for the manual is available here.

Translate

We very much welcome translations of the manual. Please join the inkscape-docs mailing list and tell us about yourself.

So far we have established the following translations “zones”:

It's best to team up with several people and coordinate your efforts.

We still haven't decided how to provide source SVG files in most comfortable way to make localization of illustrations easy. Ideas are welcome.

Note that French translation is placed in a different zone, because it's mostly ready. As soon as each translation is close to completeness, it is moved to its own subdomain too.
