I missed reading your earlier post.
The fsf-tn mailing list is at
Please feel free to subscribe to fsf-tn to discuss localisation plans.
Nagarjun and a number of others working on various localisation projects
are part of that list.
It was conceived as a state level list to help co-ordinate free software
activities here. One of the goals has been to initially have at least
one fsug in each district. Of course, everything is driven by voluntary
action and there is no central command there. Out of the chaos we call
free software, a few sparks do light up things here and there making the
place bright. If you have plans for fsf-tn, please share it - it could
help to invite more volunteers.

To create pdf documents, you could use OpenOffice or GNU Texmacs - both
of which are wysiwyg editors eminently suitable for the purpose at hand.
OpenOffice by default comes with a pdf button, that could save the
default opd files in pdf format. With GNU Texmacs, you could create
content and output files in pdf using File->Export->Pdf
