# Contribute¶

Whether you like to fix a tiny spelling mistake or rewrite an entire chapter, your help with the Blender manual is most welcome!

## How It Works¶

You can modify the manual by editing local text files. These files are kept in sync with those online via a repository, based on this the server will update the online manual.

The manual is written in the reStructuredText (RST) markup language and can be edited using a plain text editor. For a local preview, you convert (build) the manual source files from RST into HTML web pages.

## Getting Started¶

The following guides lead you through the process.
