Just tested the files; the PDF can be opened in Draw without much damage (just a little justification problem in the topmost text).
I guess the *version* of the Vegur font-file matters a bit.
Oh, and the second-last line is in a font called Vegurular ???

Also opened the SLA in Scribus 1.5.2svn, the last line ( is truncated. Again quite possible that font parameters have evolved, either in Scribus or in the Vegur font.

IMHO I think that normal translators should not be asked to use highly specialized (newbie unfriendly) software like Scribus - rather we should encourage folks to use the LibreOffice applications as much as possible.
For me, Draw is just fine...

Best regards,

Scribus 1.4.6 can't open the file with message:
Same for me, I got version 1.4.6
Ah yes, sorry, I should've mentioned that I used Scribus 1.5.3. It is
the development branch, but the wiki says:

"Scribus 1.5.3 is very fast and has been thoroughly tested. Generally,
everything that works reliably in 1.4.x also works in 1.5.3"

If there's demand, I could remake it in Draw of course!


It's not about not trusting Scribus 1.5.3 but rather that lot of long term supported distributions are based upon Debian stable and lot of them will have Scribus 1.4. Installing from source is scary for majority of users and that majority will run 1.4.6.

If you think Scribus is better suited for this job, is it possible for you to install 1.4.6 and redo it in Scribus 1.4.6 rather then Draw?

But Draw should work too.
