Hi there,
same goes for me, in my case German. Scrolling through the Addons I stumbled over the ModernUI Workbench. I like the concept a lot! (Using a laptop with a small screen). Reading the wiki doc on the WB, I found there is no German version which I intend to change...
I'll send a PM according to the first post when my fist ever post in approved.

Hi,

I am new to FreeCAD and just got started with tutorials. I would like to help translate the wiki into Russian.
Also, perhaps I will try to create subtitles (when accessing the video) or record some lessons in Russian.
I apologize for the quality of the language - this is Google's auto-translation.

Hi,
I'm using FreeCAD since three months to design a house. Having a 3D model is much better than 2D drawings only.
I would like to improve the wiki as I come along.

My first change would be on the page
Part Wedgehttps://wiki.freecadweb.org/Part_Wedge:
This Wedge defaults to a larger square base and a smaller square top.
I think it should be
... rectangular square top.
because Xmax-Xmin and Zmax-Zmin don't need to be the same.
The image shows a square base and a square top. I would like to change that too.
The page says also
Base face X axis span
I found this misleading and would replace it by
Base face X length
.

Related pages also describe the default shape that the command produces (f.e. Part_Box). I would keep this information and only rephrase it a little.

Using 'span' seems correct to me since the author is referring to a set of two numbers: a min. and a max. value.

Hi Paul, you are right, however in this one case I happened to notice his post and had a moment of sympathy thinking if he is even having half the trouble with English that I have with Chinese, he is doing well! :D So I created his account etc. via PM.

I am hopeful that the Chinese Language forum is at a tipping point where it might be about to take off, since it takes momentum, more people will ask when more people answer. I am delighted to have you as a moderator, since trying to moderate via Google translate was not the best. :)
