New free book in French on Scribus is available
Floss Manuals Francophone have just announced immediate availability of a new free manual in French on Scribus—the free application for desktop publishing.
This is a 161 pages long book on basics of desktop publishing powered by Scribus. It covers essential topics such as creating layouts, understanding composition and typography (and fonts management using Fontmatrix). It also explains important concepts such as color management.
If you speak French and need to understand basics of desktop publishing using a free application such as Scribus, you will find the book a rather useful introduction. The book is freely available online, and a version in PDF can be downloaded too.
The manual was written by a team of Scribus contributors from France, Canada, Switzerland and Niger during a book sprint in Strasbourg that took place on July 6-10. The sprint was sponsored by International Organization of la Francophonie.
Since all the FOSS manuals are stored in a wiki, you can contribute to the manual and/or translate it to other languages. Please contact FOSS manuals team to find out how you would proceed with that.
