Proofreading of KStars Russian Documentation

completed by: Alexandr Gudulin

mentors: Yuri Chornoivan

KStars is KDE desktop planetarium. Russian translation of KStars documentation is very rough (contains many orthographic, stylistic, and punctuation errors as well as untranslated words).

Your task is to proofread the translation. The result should contain neither fuzzy translations nor typographical inconsistencies (should comply with Russian KDE team guidelines). There should be no orthographic errors according to the spellchecker in the final translation. All untranslated messages (13) should be translated.

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).
