[Rejected] Aurora Translators

Hey Aurorians!
@Alex_J @ell

My name is Aleida Castillo and here we have a proposal that could help to expand AURORA Worldwide.

Purpose

  • To have a reliable team of translators available to work in partnership with Aurora’s Website Team

Objectives

  • To translate Aurora docs into other languages to be added to Aurora Blog Website (Aurora Blog)
  • In our early stage, we will translate Aurora Blog content into Spanish, Portuguese and French as initial languages, and later other languages will be added.
  • To translate about 75,000 words into different languages per month

Target Audience

Our target audience will be the Hispanic - 559 million, Francophone - 300 million, and Lusophone - 270 million people (at the beginning), which is a significant segment of the total population that gives value to AURORA and NEAR communities.

Expected Results

By opening language borders we offer users to have access to the AURORA Ecosystem Docs in their native languages, facilitating their education and integration into the NEAR Protocol, encouraging them to join our communities, through participation within the ecosystem as developers, holders, builders, or enthusiasts.

Success Metrics

Regarding our background as part of Learn Near Club Pro Translators Team and work system (Translator and Proofreading) we can offer high-quality services for this purpose, bringing such great value to Aurora Ecosystem by opening languages borders.

So many times we have found in different Spanish forums the struggle of users with documents in English. That’s the principal reason why this proposal fixes perfectly to Aurora Ecosystem. This will contribute to the easiest approach for users worldwide(onboarding, education, marketing, etc).

Here we have an example where users discuss the language and the solution (Google Translator) is not the best.

It can be measured by evaluating factors such as the increase of participation by communities that make up the target audience, developing among people worldwide, and the level of satisfaction through pools, offering the availability of information in their languages.

Our goal is to integrate more languages ​​into the options already established at Aurora Blog page:

As we have done for the Learn Near Club page.

Additionally, we could help translate any subject of your interest, projects, promotions or events, developing content, such as : https://doc.aurora.dev/ , Aurora DAO, AURORA token distribution

Scope

To contribute to build solid communities worldwide within AURORA docs, which can be followed by its users in their mother language.

Opportunities

Having present our target audience, the current population and countries available that we can potentially reach are enormous, around 80 countries and territories, covering close to 1 Billion people speaking those languages directly (natives), without counting other people speaking them as a second language.

I would like to know the reason why it was not approved in this period in order to improve the following proposal. Taking into account that it is a need expressed by some users here, how can we make it a better offer to cover such a need?

Many thanks,

Aleida

Hello,
I like this initiative as an idea. I think that one of the reasons why your proposal has been rejected is because the staff of translators that you have integrated is centralized (in part, by region or by language). I think it should be more decentralized.

For example, by starting to be more open, offering a contest to bring together translators from across the Aurora ecosystem. Therefore, to grow as a solid Guild of translators for Aurora including several languages to crosscheck information effectively.
