Hi John,
it sounds like your needs were more multilingual than Polish, you're are
probably better off staying on this multilingual mailing list  and,
perhaps more important, using  IRC  irc://irc.freenode.net/#scribus to
clarify further details.

To see, what can be done with Scribus at the current stage of its
development please see the reports in our Success Stories (e.g. the
report about "Le Tigre"):


Another report which might interest you is this one:

Quoting from it:
"...Then I built all the book production with Scribus, and that was
definitely a good choice! ...I have developed a web based interface, o?n
which my mother was typing the texts, then my software was generating
the Scribus format file, based o?n what she had typed, and my father was
adding the pictures needed and the text writing..."
