1// WELCOME
2Welcome to the print version of the FSF Giving Guide. The full version is at https://www.fsf.org/givingguide, and tips for running a Giving Guide Giveaway event are at https://www.fsf.org/givingguide/giving-guide-giveaway-primer.

4// TO PRINT
5The two pages are designed to be printed on opposite sides of the same sheet. It's formatted for "letter"-size paper (8.5 x 11 inches).
6
7Before printing, you may wish to use a PDF manipulation program like pdfmod to combine the two PDFs into a single, two-page file, but it will also work to print one side, then feed the printed sheets back into your printer upside down.
8
9If you'd rather not do that, you can always print the two pages on separate sheets and staple them together.

11// TO EDIT
12First install the included fonts on your computer (or open a text editor to check that they are already there). Then open the SVG files for each page from the sources directory. We recommend Inkscape for this. Inkscape can save to PDF when you are done, using File->Save a Copy.

14// TO TRANSLATE OR RESIZE
15We welcome translations and resizings to other paper sizes! However, we request that translators find at least one other person who reads English well to compare the original and translated document. The FSF puts a lot of care into our choice of wording and it is important to us that the meaning be preserved.

17To keep everything easy to use, please submit complete translations/resizings including fonts, both SVGs and both PDFs, as well as this README, archived in the same structure as the original English version. Bonus points if you translate the README! Send your finished ZIP to campaigns@fsf.org.
