GNOME Marketing in Greece

GNOME booth at Salonica

Generating multilingual PDF files out of GNOME documentation

Robert describes how to generate PDF files from GNOME documentation source files. We describe here how to manually generate PDF files from translated documentation. The relevant gnome-doc-utils files for documentation generation is at http://git.gnome.org/cgit/gnome-doc-utils/tree/tools.

Using SVN for GNOME Translators

Update 3rd June 2009: This is a very old post when GNOME was using SVN for the VCS (now we use git). My blog theme does not show the year, so I am writing this in case you are confused by the post. Now GNOME uses SVN to manage the development of the software. To …
