If we wait until the English is fully updated, translations will never 
As I said, go ahead and start with anything in Scribus Basics. You might 
just send them to me off list, and I'll take care of submitting them -- 
we probably want some critical mass before we include them. After that, 
let me know what you want to do. Some current articles aren't worth 
translating since they need to be replaced.

If you're going to make screenshots, try to keep the name of the image 
file the same as the English so it's easier to track.
