How to Help

  • Subscribe to the inkscape-docs mailing list and tell us what you are planning to do so that no work is duplicated
  • Adding new information to the manual: write your files in docbook or in plain text that we'll convert (please follow the User Manual Guidelines)
  • translating pages
  • contact a contributor or add your name in the list below and have a look at the User Manual Work in Progress
  • To view the current state in HTML, type "make fr" or "make en" (xsltproc is needed). See the Makefile for other targets.
  • For pictures, you may use the "images/sshot_yourlanguage" directory or create it if necessary".
  • Don't translate anything yet, we are working on the French Version, which will then be translated into English, and that will become the basis for translation work. You will get a PO file for translating later.
