My question to you is about the new pages you have made about KDevelop5. I noticed that you took the contents of the equivalent KDevelop4 page and copied it with few modifications. That indeed seem to be a good way to get started. If you intend to proceed that way, I think we can actually employ a feature of the wiki software to transition existing translations along with the content. I wanted to know if it would be ok with you to do so; if so I can find out how to proceed and explain the process.

Hi Pfollas

Don't worry about the finer details of editing. Just start writing. It is easy enough to correct formatting mistakes; I usually patrol all new pages that I am aware of. You will get the hang of it as you go along.

As to translation I am happy to answer any questions you may have (and eventually include the material in a new introduction to translators).
