Xfce Documentation

This page describes the Xfce documentation project as well as how documentation works for writers, translators and developers.

The Xfce documentation project is available online at git.xfce.org in the “xfce4-docs” repository that is made up of as many branches as different documentations.

The documentation is written with the Mallard markup language.

Translation is done on Transifex at translations.xfce.org as individual PO files.
