Russian documentation translation update for KolourPaint

completed by: apd2004

mentors: Alexander Potashev

KolourPaint is a simple painting program to quickly create raster images in KDE. Russian localization (translation of the GUI) of KolourPaint is complete, but Russian translation of its handbook is out-of-date.

Your task is to complete Russian translation of the KolourPaint Handbook. As a part of the task you should create localized screenshots for the handbook. The translation of the handbook should comply with Russian KDE team guidelines. You can have a look at the current handbook translation.

What you should know

  • Read and remember Russian KDE team localization guidelines (in Russian),
  • Note that most often asked questions are already answered in the concise handbook on translation of KDE (in Russian) by Russian KDE team,
  • The best place to ask any questions on KDE Russian localization is our mailing list (see below).
