It depends.
If you would merely translate the manual, then currently is perhaps
not the right moment since the manual is not up-to-date.

Ideally we should start an english version of the manual in the
userbase, try to keep it as up-to-date as possible, and translate from
this version to other languages. (Like kdenlive itself.)

I started a page on the userbase for discussing the manual structure:
http://userbase.kde.org/Kdenlive/Organization Please everybody add
your suggestions if you have some :) Then we should find people
helping us with writing the manual. But I think it is a good idea to
have some kind of framework first such that possible co-authors don't
feel too lost.

I also noticed that I started every line with an «I», but this is just a detail.
