    Consisting of 12 pages it gives a detailed how-to-navigate-and-use overview.

    The »Guide to Kartonmodell-Forum« was compiled by Sheila Mertens,
    one of our first members living in the Netherlands. We are grateful
    that she did such a good job.

    Thanks Thomas and Sheila! I have tried to register at your sight before but was thrown by the differing language. Used your pdf guide and presto! - all registered and browsing your sight within minutes.

    Thanks heaps,

    . . . as this thread might be of general interest (containing the english guide
    to www.kartonmodell-forum.de , it should be topping the bill from time to
    time . . . thank your for your attention.

    Have a nice weekend and best regards

    I most certainly agree Thomas, as new members join here every day, a pointer to this topic every now and then is definately needed.
    If you will notice, this thread has been "stickied" so it will, at the very least, stay at the top of this category.
    This manual is a huge help to those interested in your site, which means anyone who even likes card modeling!

    Thanks for all you do Thomas, in promoting this wonderful hobby!:wink:

    Gotta agree with Russell! Just joined last night and the translation page was key to navigation for me! :grin: Of course, now I am kicking myself for not paying attention to my German classes in high school! If I had only known...:( Thanks, Thomas!

    Thanks, Sheila and Thomas!

    I have been hesitant to use the site so far because of the language barrier. If I may ask a typically anglo-ego-centric question, does the forum software not offer a language option like some others?

    I think there should be a "sticky" about the translation document. Maybe there should be something on the our home page with a link to i. It sure helped me out a lot and the people there are great.

    Rick,

    I have to confess to my regret that the software we're using
    does not contain this feature . . .

    Best regards

    Please, Rick don't complaint. :wink:

    The 70% of internet is in english. Think in the poor guys as I:cry:. I learned english just to be able to work with computers.

    At least now I can read the carmodels forum :-D
