First post, I plan to improve https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Tutoria ... en_windows by adding a new 5.1 point "Make sure Relative (R) is not selected". My default was having it selected, and the resulting shape was far from the intended rectangle.

Hello Everyone

I am just joining the Forum, but was looking into FreeCAD for a while already.
Now my colleague here at work just told me about an idea that could contribute to the documentation Wiki.
We are from Switzerland (german speaking) and have two apprentices in mechanical engineering, who have to do a study in their english lesson.
Now we thought about bringing two things together. They could make translations for the FEM Workbench for example. So they can learn about FEM and english.

They could just start with this page and post it as plain text here. https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/FEM_Install
Maybe I can also help them later to bring the output to the wiki if I get the permission of you guys and girls...

Regards
patrick

Sounds great. Please though run things by @bernd over in the FEM subforum that way you're all on the same page. PM me for permissions
