Hi Francisco Hierro Gomez,

A Spanish translation of the guide would certainly be welcome.

I think the first prerequisite to this is to have some basic understanding of the English language. 
That's for several reasons:
- the document to translate is in English
- the help available to translators is in English
- the gnucash-devel mailing (which hosts the most people that can help) is an English list

If that is not a problem, this link should get you started:

If you need help on something, you can ask questions here on the list, but that would best be in 

As for getting a pdf on the website: if your translation is sufficiently complete, it will be added to 
the supported languages. From then on it will appear on the website in all the formats we 
support (html, pdf, epub and mobi).

Good luck !
