Busy new-design & Multilanguage: Call for Translators!

10 days ago

Few days ago we announced a 'Call for Private Beta testers'.
Many of you have joined the new version. We would like to thank everyone for all the good vibes and fantastic feedbacks we received! This is very constructive and invigorating.

We want to target users in emerging markets. For a very long time since its conception, the internet was dominated by English-speaking users. Today, the situation is radically different. We will see English becoming the language of a web minority, pushed away from its spot by Chinese, Indian, or even Spanish, Afrikaans and Arabic. China+India = more than 1 billion internet users in 2016.

Serving a global audience is part of our growth strategy. It involves translation, localization and internationalization. We are now translating the Busy new version to have a real Multilingual platform.

Starting with English, we currently have 16 languages on Busy interface. Our priority is to target Asia (Chinese, Korean, Indian, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Lao, etc.) but we want Busy to be translated in all languages.

Depending on the language setting of the accessing browser, users will be automatically redirected to the interface translated in their native language. They can also select a specific one in Settings.

Few Steemians helped us by contributing with their native language.

Nice, have you guys also checked phrases here http://translate.esteem.ws maybe some will be similar?! 😉

great project busy! Always on when steemit is down!!!

i like your posts. interesting things become my choice for comment .. good job.

very nice post

Hello sir.......

Now I decide to use it, seems that these guys complete much work on design while researchers busy working on tech and blockchain

good news, I wish you success always,

·

is that a rhetorical question @badol1994? he have the right to answer anything since the steemit accept it.

·

Busy is basically Twitter, but decentralized correct... didn't Julian want something like this?

·
·

Busy is another interface to interact with the Steem blockchain.

You could probably offer a bigger bounty if you want quality translations... 20 is pretty low.

·

depending on how many words we talk about.

Right now it's only 60-80 words.
It can be done very quick.

·
·

Ahh ok that is fair.

·
·

:)) for #tr aprox 10 12 min .

You could likely offer a greater abundance in the event that you need quality interpretations... 20 is truly low.

AMAZING article @busy.org, REALLY GREAT POST.

I enjoyed reading your post. There's a lot of good information

Woww..its so helping me.thanks for sharing

is there any rewards for proofreading? I am from Belgium (so thats Flemish/Dutch and French) and I live in Switzerland so that German as well and I see that those have not been voted yet (which i assume is done by proofreading?)

Hey! i am portuguese (portugal) interested in help translate english to portuguese. 🇵🇹

Thank you that would be great! Here you can do translation in portuguese: https://crowdin.com/translate/busy/13/en-pt

·
·

Thank you! I just finished it :) messaged you on discord

Great works!

I think eSteem app is also doing translations for many of these languages, wouldn't it be good if you can use their translations. It might save time and money.

muy buena publicación me gusto mucho

hi i new

@manandezo, uma grande oportunidade para você amigo.

Hey @fabien, in the portuguese language community here at Steemit we have a brazilian member who works as a professional translator. His name is @manandezo and I believe he can help you translate it into portuguese.

·

Thank you, that would be great!

·
·

Thank you so much for the mention @jsantana. I will try and follow the steps to get into the platform and begin translating into Portuguese (Fortunately, using Edge I could also access busy.org, what I could never do using Chrome).

Hi @busy.org!
I will translate English into Vietnamese

This is great! It gives opportunity for people from various countries. Hopefully we see more languages added to the list of translation requirement! @busy.org

Before opening the site in a browser-setting language, please confirm this is what the user wants.
It's better than geolocating and deciding the language based on location, which actually sucks monkey balls. But it's still annoying when you're at someone else's pc, or an internet cafe and all off a sudden a site appears in a language you don't understand.

And why not add flags to easily change between languages, there's still room on the page for that?

·

You can select among different languages directly in the Settings page.

Browser language is a good solution, there is no perfect solution. And of course we don't use geolocation.
Adding flags for languages on the main page is not user friendly so we use autodetection + settings to allow more freedom without confirming that the users wants. It's is also more efficient in my opinion than asking everyone.

I don't think you will face a case where you don't speak Chinese, but your Chrome Browser is set to Chinese, so Busy.org will display in Chinese. Unless you're using Busy directly in China, on a internet cafe.

thanks for your input anyway, we re working on improvments on this

·
·

I don't think you will face a case where you don't speak Chinese, but your Chrome Browser is set to Chinese, so Busy.org will display in Chinese. Unless you're using Busy directly in China, on a internet cafe.

I disagree. I live near Benidorm, you should see all the English in Internet cafes, trying to print their boarding passes. These pc's are normally set so Spanish, you can see people struggle to find the basic information.
While I agree browser detection is a better solution than geolocation, I still feel that besides the detection, language flags are very user friendly. A lot more than going to settings to change the language. Especially since that setting is "hidden" in the menu, I just found it for the first time because of this post ;-)

·
·
·

i understand your point. Thanks for your input. The solution for this will probably have to allow user to easily switch language from the homepage instead of going into Settings.

needed....... post

Nice project! Keep it going

very nice article

any Indian languages ?

I can help with #Nepali if you have any option.

·

Awesome thank you! You can translate Busy for Nepali here: https://crowdin.com/translate/busy/13/en-nenp

·
·

Ok I'm In.

Thank you for this post.

Great app, can't wait to use it

We print books on 54 different languages. This is actually for us.

·

Wow, do you have native translators?

How about Indonesia. Bahasa Indonesia is the largest language in the world. Is there any contributor?

·

Thank you, our new interface has been already translated in Bahasa Indonesia :)

Wow I am. Extremely happy with this update 🙌

I'm gonna register soon

I am professional translator in English and Arabic language . How much do you pay for this service ?

·

We pay 20 STEEM for a complete translation. Arabic has already been translated see https://crowdin.com/project/busy/ar

I cross test the new busy.org using top 20 browser and I dont find any issue. Also a cross device, bit slow with mobile phone but still meet the benchmark. Overall no problem

nice

Afrikaans translation completed @fabien . Please get in contact with me

a few hours ago I was talking to a friend of mine that English it's a real problem for us... If we knew the language at a different level, maybe the quality of our posts would increase exponentially...
Lucky us we're not storytellers, we just present our arts the way we can better...
But this is a great initiative, congratulations and good luck!
Thank you!!!:)
Enjoy @nature.art, my kind of art!:)

This is great! I just translated the Norwegian part, so now we just need someone to verify it. There are some sentences that are a bit difficult to translate, so it would be great if we got another person to take a look at my translations.

Dont you need Iranian translator? I can provite that if u ever wanted to add Persian as well.

Thank you so much of the information here was unknown to me

Good job

Nice

Thank you for sharing it

Great job bro.i resteem this post.i hope this post will be in hot list.best of luck.

100% upvote for what it is worth, as a thank you for all of your hard work. Busy.org saved me the other week when Steemit.com went down with the DDoS.

The Busy.org design is looking good, and I must say the functionality is maturing. It may even take over as the premier interface to the Steemit blockchain one day.

Again, thank you. =)

Definitely will look into to this to help whenever is possible.

I set up account. I can help with Japanese.

nice bro

@busy please upvote my post @fadlie

I can work on Tamil language translation. Add "Tamil" in to your Crowdin project.

Great❤

I think we will have a Hungarian version. ;)

I upvoted and comment for you. Please upvote and comment for helping me grow @mdfoysal

Hi @fabien! I am a Filipino. I will gladly help in translating text/articles from English to Filipino.

That's fantastic! I do alot of translating from English to Spanish for people in need, great job!😊

This was a successful strategy for eSteem and I'm glad to see Busy.org use it too.

Thanks for the update.
Lately Steemit.com constantly went down, so I was using the Steemit editor to edit then copy-paste it here in busy.org to post. Sometimes the links and the pictures are gone. I wonder if it is normal?

I can't login on busy ( v2) with my posting key why?

·

With SteemConnect2 you need to grant @busy.app permission to post on your behalf, so the app busy can post for you. This operation require at least your active key when you authorize the app then you can login with you memo key or posting key. You can revoke @busy.app anytime using this link http://v2.steemconnect.com/revoke/@busy.app
The active key is only used to make the operation in your browser then discarded, nothing stay or goes to the server.
