Hallo Anke,

Yes, much of the German Wiki translation is outdated. It's the same with other language versions, including English. Maybe we should do a major cleanup and tag all outdated docs as such or update them. However, the Wiki is mostly a forum for user contributions. There is no "Wiki Team" as anyone can contribute, but you need to have an account. Once you are registered, feel free to update any document you wish to.

Regarding questions, there is this mailing list where people can also ask questions in German and many other languages.

You also mentioned the online manual in the Wiki. Guess what? It's outdated as well. The original idea was to add the online docs to the wiki and create automated updates from svn. Somehow this never happened for reasons unknown. Maybe we should remove the stuff as well.

As for the tutorial: There is a much better one in Scribus itself AND it has been translated to German. Moreover, I'm currently working with an external contributor on a complete German translation of the Online Manual, which includes many improvements that will also be added to the English original.

Beste Grüße
