How you can help at ODFAuthors
We are a group of volunteer reviewers, writers, editors, proofreaders, indexers, and translators producing documentation for LibreOffice and Apache OpenOffice Writer, Calc, Draw, Impress, and Base. If you want to assist with producing documentation, you need an account to log in to this website. Please write to email@example.com and request an account. (We had to stop self-registration because of too many spam accounts.) But first! Please subscribe to theodfauthors-discuss mailing list and introduce yourself.
To help with writing documentation in English, please select one of the project tabs to go to a page with more information.
