I disagree. The issue is getting translators on board actually working 
on the translations. The raw material they need is present in the 
1.3.9svn version of Scribus. Witness our Italian friend Alevati 
feverishly working on Italian translations for the wiki pages, and it 
doesn't seem he is inhibited by the use of English-language screenshots.

One of the big problems we had with the printed manual was getting 
output from those who told us they would contribute. I can step in and 
begin making screenshots showing the content pertinent to the text, in 
whatever language. It may be that some translators won't mind or would 
prefer to make their own.

There is not quite so much work as it would seem, since there is still 
quite a bit of content that Christoph and I agree is quite out of date, 
and wrong to varying degrees, with screenshots that make little sense in 
the context of current Scribus versions.
