Revision as of 14:23, 28 March 2006

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!

Some notes for 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).
  • Please don't add your translation to a reference. Use the referenced word instead.
  • If possible, add a link for the term you translated, containing further information.
  • In case you are missing a term in your native language, but don't know the English translation, you can mention it with a short description in English on the “discussion” panel.
  • Please use html encoding for special characters. Tabular Listing of Selected HTML Codes
Some links:
For Latin-1 codes
For Polish codes
