The idea of this wiki page is to collect technical terms often used in Scribus, DTP in general, or in printing to make translations within Scribus consistent and also help translators that are not so involved in DTP and its terms.

Just add your ideas and if possible translations!

A note to translators: Please make sure that your contribution is in the right alphabetical order with respect to the English name of your language (i.e. French before German and after Albanian).
