(Sorry for not replying "for real" but I only just joined the list..)
I would like to ask the author (Johan Forsberg) of the about.svg
when choosing Help ->
About -> Splash to provide some translated versions of the graphic.
The xx.po-files allow for a translation of the part "Draw
beneath the version number
in the way that one can enter a string pointing to an altered
/share/inkscape/screens in the inkscape installation directory.
For German it would be "about.de.svg" and "Frei Zeichnen" instead of
Freely". Maybe other
translators would like to join in for their languages?
That would be great, although I guess "draw freely" is sort of a play on
words in english that may not translate too well to other languages..?
BTW, I was thinking of using the usual "draw freely" style (e.g. as seen in
the 0.46 about splash) but I didn't do it because I wasn't sure where it
came from. Apparently it would be OK to use it, but how to translate it? I
don't have the font...
