Thanks for telling me what Bore actually meant, otherwise it would have
taken awhile to figure out. The Babelfish translations aren't too bad
and I'll go through and check them. I've just finished the Data entry
page so here it is. If you find any errors on it, please email me. What
pages have already been translated/nearly done that I should not be

Data entry "with the keyboard"To start a new document, it is necessary to start by launching AbiWord as considering previously. AbiWord then presents a blank page on which we can start to make a document.
Initially it is enoung to access the text in a rough way without being concerned with its working, of its appearance (i.e., to carry out the data entry " with the keyboard "). You can type with the keyboard the letters which make the document and they are automatically inserted into the place where the cursor is. This cursor automatically advances position with each new letter, as would make it a typewriter. It is necessary to respect; obviously, capital letters and spaces between the words.
To introduce a new paragraph, it is simply enough to press on the " Enter " key. However, the " Enter " key is only used to introduce a new paragraph and must never be used to introduce a simple new line. The changing of lines are managed by AbiWord when the text overflows the tight hand margin. It is the guiding principle of any word processiing. You can however add a manual jump of line by simultaneously pressing on the keys " Shift " and " Enter " and that does not make a new paragraph.
The automatic spell checkingIt sometimes happens that you to make typing errors during the data entry. To correct the mispelled text, use:
* the key " Backspace" (above the " Enter " key) makes it possible to erase the character located BEFORE the cursor of insertion I.If a word or a text is selected, the pressing the key " Backspace " or " Delete " will erase all the selected text.
When a word is mispelt, AbiWord underlines in red this word indicating that it does not exist in its dictionary. Here for example for the word juxtaposition: It does the same for all the words that it does not know even if they are correct.
To correct a word underlined in red, it is enough to click with the right button of the mouse on the word. A menu then opens containing a certain number of suggestions. If the correctly spelled word appears among the suggestions, it is enough to click above so that the mispelt word is automatically corrected.
If no suggestion is made by AbiWord, that means that AbiWord did not find any word similar in its dictionary. It should then be checked if this word is spelt correctly. If this is the case, there are then two possibilities:
* The Ignore button will not underline any more of the selected word and will continue the checking.To launch the spell checker, there are several different ways:
The zoomDuring the data entry or before the printing of the document, it can be interesting to zoom in on the document. (to have an overall picture or to see the enlarged document) For that there are two solutions:
* Click on the small arrow on the right of the Zoom list located on the Standard toolbar then select the amount of zoom from the list.
