is there anyone who objects using xml2po for the tutorial
for the process.
With xml2po, translators would get regular po files to translate,
with all the positive effects (no manual looking for string changes;
more dedicated tools than for Docbook; familiarity of amny
translators with the format; translator credits for free (even
though we don't pull them yet for the About box); strings from
included images are in the same file; the Gnome people are using it;
and probably some more).
I am using xml2po for the German translation since pre-0.45, and it
worked quite well so far. I have started automating the conversion
process to HTML/SVG (to the then intermediate Docbook XML) in SVN.
So if there are no valid objections overriding the plusses, I will
soon start converting all translated Docbook XML files to the po
format. Please submit any translated XML files that are not yet in
I think now is a good time to tackle that process, considering that
0.46 is probably a while but not too far away, and there are quite
some efforts going into tutorials recently (thanks Ryan :).
PS: I'm cmarqu on IRC.
is there anyone with uncommitted translations around? I would like
to run "make update-po" again to pull in new strings from the
source, and it's easier if all translations so far are in SVN.
(I have now committed the translations in the Patch tracker, so
these should be fine.)

There is an existing translation of the manual in wiki of inkscape-forum.de.
Someone will have to update it and convert to DocBook/XML when English
version is ready.
i am tillmann from germany and i want to join your community. i want to try
to help you in devoloping inkscape, but i think it would be better, if you
say me, what kind of help is needed. something i imagined what to do is
translating to german, writing manuals or helping on the website. i can not
coding real programming-languages. i can code only html and php.
so, please give me some ideas how to help, if you need help.
