helix84 came to me with a question that I do not have an answer to and
have been unable to get one so far (6 weeks later now). With that, I
will get this question out to our translators and developers in general
to see if anyone in our community knows or can find out.
Please read below.

Subject: Inkscape manual page translations
Date: Tue, 21 Jul 2009 10:47:33 +0200
I believe you're the release warden for 0.47. Can you help me with the
I translated the inkscape.pod file to Slovak and I'd like to see it
included in 0.47.
1) I'm not sure where to add it so it will build (because I don't
understand autotools very well)
2) I can't get it to build correctly and I have this problem with the
existing French manpage, too
I tried it on Ubuntu 9.04:
pod2man -u --center=Inkscape inkscape.sk.pod > inkscape.sk.1
man -l inkscape.sk.1
With the -u option it munges the non-ASCII characters, without it it
adds A~X sequences.
When I did a normal make, inkscape.fr.1 was created but this has the
same problem - note the A~X sequences. I noticed the utf8-to-roff
filter in the makefile but I don't know how to use it. Anyway it seems
it's used for the French file in the makefile so it probably doesn't
