Happy to have you on board! I'd like to give you a few instructions for your translations:
If something is written in bold it should stay in bold in your translation.
If something is written in CAPITALS, it should also STAY IN CAPITALS in your translation.
If something is in a bulleted list,
it should stay in a bulleted list.
If text is written in a special frame like below,
it should also be in the same type of frame in your translation.
How to make these frames:
Go to an empty line (without text) or create one by pressing ENTER.
Then press the circle with the + sign to the left and choose "hint".
You can change the type of the frame afterwards by positioning your cursor inside the frame and clicking the circle with the arrow pointing downward, then choosing a type of frame "Info, Warning, Danger or Success".
Pay attention to what type of frame is used in the original English text and use the same type in your translation.
You can bold or italicize text by selecting the text itself and choosing B to bold it or I to italicize it, OR pressing CTRL + B for bolding and CTRL + I for italicizing.
If you want to
mark a part of the text as code, simply select it, and choose the <> sign.
If you want to make text larger, select the circle to the left and choose Heading 1, 2 or 3.
Heading 1 and 2 have keyboard shortcuts which are listed in the same menu (CTRL + SHIFT + 1 for Heading 1, CTRL + SHIFT + 2 for Heading 2).
Choosing "Paragraph" in this menu returns text to normal size.
If you want to create a bulleted list, just go into a new line and begin it with a dash ( - ), then write what you need to and press ENTER and Gitbook will start a bulleted list for you.
Pressing TAB while in a bulleted list will create another list level:
You can add URLs by selecting text with your mouse and clicking the right-most icon and typing in the URL into the empty field which appears.
