Translated the first page.

I added <languages/> .
I deleted [[Category:Manual]] except that in "Manual: Summary".
Category is automatically added with Template:Manual:TOC/xx and {{:Manual:Summary/xx}}

It seems to me that in this way translations are fine
Do you agree?

Great job yorik the manual looks amazing! Found a typo on page 61, "...,but part for them,...". You're missing the 'r'.

Ok the manual is now 100% on the wiki!

Therefore, I propose to change the wiki main page. What about this: http://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/index.ph ... :Main_Page

Hello.

Looks really better, yorik. Thanks for your work ...

What about declaring the manual also as "Tutorial" so that is listed on the Tutorials-Page ?

I noticed that on page 46 the Sketcher Geometries and Constraints links all go the the Symmetric Constraint, except for the last one (the Lock Constraint).
