Ubuntu Manual released in Greek, German

After a couple of months and many, many delays, The Ubuntu Manual Team has released Getting Started with Ubuntu 10.04 in some more languages, Greek and German.

The setbacks in translated editions being released was something we wanted to avoid, but unfortunately translation takes time and editing takes just as long, if not longer, to keep the translated editions up to the same standard as the main English US version of the manual. Coupled with a short 6 month cycle where we have to write, get screenshots, edit, translate and release a near 200 page book — it’s tough work.

Even if you don’t read Greek or German, I highly recommend you download the PDF just to see how much work went into these translations and how amazing they look!

Many thanks to c7p for editing the Greek edition, and Daniel Schury for the German edition. Loads of kudos to Kevin Godby for pulling everything together in LaTeX.

P.S – Take a good look at the screenshots in the translated editions. Pretty good attention to detail, no? That’s how the Ubuntu Manual Team rolls.
