Hi Priscila,

Peff has said it all. Depending on where you are on you way to learning about git, I would recommend:

* Starting with Progit for a gentle introduction to using git
* Translating git manpages for extensive knowledge of all git commands
* Translating git itself for indepth knowledge of how git works

The translation teams are welcoming to new contributors.
