I discovered Envato Tuts+ around 2010, when I was looking for answers to my questions about Photoshop, struggling to understand how it worked. One day I came across the awesome Photoshop Basix video series on PSDTuts+ (which later became Envato Tuts+). It was created by Hungarian design instructor Martin Perhiniak, and my favorite thing about that series was that it was very concise. Every video was just under 10 minutes, yet packed with useful information.
I looked deeper into the Tuts+ site and found sections offering valuable tutorials in other creative fields, such as illustration, design, photography and video, including even business tips for creative professionals. I told my friends about the site, but the problem was that most of them had problems with understanding English because their native language is Russian.
So when Envato announced that they were looking for people to translate tutorials, I immediately wanted to take part. I discovered that when you’re translating a tutorial, it actually leads to a deeper level of understanding of the topic. And this enriched both my language skills and my Photoshop skills.
I strongly believe that knowledge is the path to freedom, and Envato's translation project helps to bring valuable, up-to-date information on design, photography, business, music to people all over the world. Anyone interested in translating articles into Russian can take part in it, too.
How to Access Translations on Envato Tuts+
You can access our translations in many languages, not just Russian, via the drop-down menu towards the top of tutorials and articles.
