Christophe Masutti has translated part of Designing with LibreOffice into French. Titled LibreOffice, c’est stylé !, the translation is available from this page.
The translator writes:
This adaptation of the book is both a translation and a free modification of the original version of Bruce Byfield. In addition to the translation of the majority of the passages, some of them were objet of modifications, following these principles:
- adaptation to the latest version of LibreOffice (6)
- removal of redundant or superfluous passages
- additions and clarifications for certain procedures
- deletion of some chapters
The original version deals with the use of the main components of LibreOffice: Writer, Calc, Draw and Impress. In this adaptation, I made the choice to focus the book only on Writer and the proper use of styles, without integrating chapters 12 to 15 of the original version. Similarly, some passages have been severely shortened.
Friends of OpenDocument has published Styles and Templates, the second of five extracts from Bruce Byfield’s Designing with LibreOffice.
Like Designing with LibreOffice, Styles and Templates is available as a free download from this page.
Printed copies are available from the Friends of Open Document store on Lulu.com.
