RE: [EN] Posting (or double-posting) in multiple languages? Read this!/[ES] ¿Publicar (o publicar doble) en varios idiomas? ¡Lee esto!

in OCD2 years ago

Totally agree with you, especially if you have a lot of autovotes it is very easy to double dip or even multiple dip the rewards pool.

Some will argue that translating to a different language involves work and people should be rewarded for that. Fair comment, but translating your own work to another language requires less effort as you know the article already and you're not creating the content again or not having to read and understand the post like when you're translating somebody else's post as often happens.

The argument that translating requires work, is something I've read quite a few times as well. The counter-argument is that by translating, you reach a broader audience, and are therefore more likely to recieve additional upvotes which an un-translated post would not.

Of course the more-work-argument falls completely apart when it is quite obvious (in many cases) that the original has simply been run through google translate. Proper translation (or localization) does require work, google does not.

Dear @johan.norberg

Interesting comment. Thanks for sharing your opinion.

I also wonder would you say about those people, who are publishing 'series' on some particular topic? You could also tell them that they should pack it all in one publication, instead of breaking one topic into 3-4 posts. Kind of nonsense, in my view.

Yours, Piotr

You are more than welcome.

Thanks for sharing your question, comment and opinion.

Four times.

Thank you for stopping by and of course, for the tokens too!

The thing is that, most of the time, those users don't even speak the language, and I say this because I know them. For example I am on different discord servers and I can see that they don't know the language at all.. So I am 100% sure that those just copy - paste - there you go, another post in what? One minute máximum? ;)

Very interesting your opinion and very elegant the way to say "I do not agree".

My issue with all this is mainly around content creation, if you're creating new content for the same topic I see no problem in each being an individual post if the content quality and length warrants it. You can't expect many to read five thousand word post when their feed is filled with so many posts.

Where I'm not keen is people breaking up the post deliberately to meet the minimum word requirement or posting a picture a day, but that's a different issue from the purpose of this post, and is behaviour driven by the nature of that interface/tag/community
