Here are some suggested corrections to the parted.texi file from version 1.6.5.

There are no technical issues, only small changes to spelling and grammar.
Some of the proposals correct obvious typos. Other proposals you may not like. (I am a native speaker of British English.) If you prefer, I can post a patch
implementing some or all of the corrections.

Line 218:platforms (Linux at the moment!)...

This seems to contradict the mention of GNU/Hurd a few lines later.

Line 277:when if some libraries will be available...

Did you mean "when or if" or "when/if"?

Line 444:your computer, that does memory checks, etc.  You can not (easily)

I prefer "cannot".

Line 516:Commands can be typed in, either in English, or your native language (if win32/.

Either the second comma is wrong or there should be
a matching "in" before "native language".

There is a general inconsistency between "Parted" and "parted", and between
"Linux" and "linux", but I don't think it is worth fixing.

Best wishes, and thanks for the program,
