I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Crawlie - The pdf is hosted on MediaFire. Don't try to download directly from the link here. Just click to go to Mediafire and download it from there.

  2. Good effort but...
    I'm afraid that some of the translation is unintelligible.
    For example :"Button Panel
    Let's go see a little matter of the right-button. That goes full of buttons. Come fast to see some results. There are, in principle, once icons. The next is enabled by default on the themes render:"

    What does it mean ?

    That is the main problem when using a translation program or web site. It doesn't respect the meaning or the intent of the autor. Doesn't respect the structure of the phrase.

    I don't mean to be disrespectful but I would not "publish" without having it proof read before. I would encourage you to get someone who is fluent in english to go through the document and rewrite sections of it.

    Anyway, like I said, good effort.

  3. Have I got something wrong ?

    It is still very hard to read
    e.g. Navigare becomes saililng.

  4. Unsettlingsilence on

    This translation seems to have been done in a program, not by a person who speaks Spanish. If there were a wiki people like myself could properly translate it when we get time. If this is possible please do so and post the link.

  5. Unsettlingsilence on

    I have started to properly and accurately translate this text. It is a long text so it will take some time, especially since it is a holiday season in my country. If anyone else would like to collaborate let me know.

  6. Greetings all,

    You might not be aware but there is also a Italian Guide by "Eugene Toppi" BLENDER 2.5 GUIDA.

    I have Google Translated it and intend to run it by the author to ask permission for putting up the Word document I'm halfway through putting together - I intend to use OpenOffice to convert to PDF if he gives the go ahead.

    The first mention of the guide is here:

    The original file is here:

    Happy Xmas and New Year to you all.
