Weekly Overview of Translation Category - Week 55, 2018

in iamutopian •  5 months ago 

As a Community Manager for Utopian, I will continue to write these weekly reports for the translation category. The report will include:

  1. Translators' Activities
  2. Moderators' Activities

In this report, I will follow the format of the other Utopian categories to provide the following information:

  • Graphs of the translators' contributions
  • Graphs of language teams contributions
  • Charts of comparisons of the different weeks
  • Graphs of moderators' scoring
  • Average score of the category & comparisons
  • Showcase the staff pick of the week if there is one
  • Update the Translators Members List
  • Upcoming Events

Summary Overview for Week 55: Jan 10 - Jan 17, 2019

A. Contributions Summary

1. Translators' Contributions for This Week

This week, we have 39 Contributions

In the translation category, it is important that we monitor the contributions submitted by the different language teams as translators work together in teams.

Therefore, the statistics and graphs will not show the contributions of the individual translators but will display the 17 language teams instead.

The following chart shows the distribution of contributions of the 17 different language teams.


  • Spanish team leads this week with 8 contributions.
  • Followed by Serbian team with 5 contributions.
  • Then German team.
  • There are no contributions from French, Slovenian and Hebrew teams.

2. Total Contributions of 4 Weeks

We will compare the total contributions in the translation category for 4 weeks time period.

Week 52: 40 contributions
Week 53: 32 contributions
Week 54: 47 contributions
Week 55: 39 contributions

There is a decrease of contributions this week which is a bit surprising because the holidays are over. Perhaps people need time to get back into the routine.

3. Four Weeks Comparisons for Each Language Team

The following table shows the number of contributions in the different language teams for 4 weeks.


  • There are 4 color bars for each language teams with each bar representing the 4 different weeks.
  • The following teams show signs of consistencies in contributions: Spanish, Serbian, Filipino, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Italian, Yoruba, Vietnamese
  • The following teams show signs of increasing engagement: Arabic, German
  • The following teams show signs of getting less engaged: Greek, Chinese, Slovenian, Hebrew

The Arabic and Germans have been restructured in the last month, so it is a good sign to see their teams increasing in their contributions.

4. Overall Growth of Each Language Team for 4 weeks

It is important that we measure the language team activities not just by one week but to see their monthly overall performance.

The following graph shows the total number of contributions of the 17 language teams in the past 4 weeks


From the chart, we are able to see the situation of each language team in the spread of 4 weeks:

  • Spanish & Serbian teams are most active in a consistent manner
  • Followed by the Filipino, Chinese, Vietnamese and Portuguese teams
  • And then Dutch, Italian, and Yoruba teams
  • There is little growth in Greek, French, Slovenian and Hebrew teams

From here, we will need to find out what is happening to translators who are not active and reasons for inactivity.

B. Language Moderators' Scoring - Week 55

For the scoring distribution, we have 27 moderators, so I need to group the scoring into language teams so that you can see the analysis clearer in the distribution of scoring.

1. Chart showing the distribution of scores

The X-axis is not able to list out all the languages for each score and only able to list out the language for every other 2 scores shown.

2. Analysis

  • The highest score this week is 89 given by the German moderator.
  • The lowest score this week is 56 given by the Filipino moderator.
  • About 35% of the contributions receive scores between 80 to 90
  • About 30% of the contributions receive scores between 70 to 80
  • About 35% of the contributions receive scores below 70.

The scores of the new questionnaire are able to reflect the quality of the translation in a better spectrum. We want all translators to get a score above 70 for quality control. Only 65% of translators meet the standard.

Contributions that are lower than 70 need remedial training. With 35% contributions receiving a score lower than 70, we need to upgrade the quality of our translators.

3. The average score of the Contributions is 74.

Last week, the average score was 71.

This week, there is an increase in the quality of the translation.

Since these translators have all been screened to do translation work, it is expected that they should score high to reflect the high standard of their work.

C. Staff Pick This Week

Unfortunately, there is no staff pick this week.

D. Translation Teams - 104 Members List

This is the most updated list of our Translations Members list.

E. Upcoming Events - Interviewing the Serbian Team Translators

It has been quiet these days, so I will start interviewing the translators to get some conversation and engagement going for the DaVinci platform.

Since Serbian team has active translators translating in a consistent manner week by week, I will interview their 3 translators this week.

That's it for this week,

This is another excellent weekly report from you. The report is comprehensive and accurate. I appreciate the effort used in putting all information together.
It's surprising that the category received fewer contributions in the week, compared to the previous week. Anyway, I am impressed with the increase of the average score. It shows the quality of the received contributions were better than the previous week.

Thanks and have a great week!

Please note that while the CM hasn't changed the footer, I am not scoring #iamutopian posts based on the questionnaire. They have their own metric, and that will be the case until we go live with the new guidelines and new questionnaire, which will be comprehensive enough to reflect these types of posts.

Your contribution has been evaluated according to Utopian policies and guidelines, as well as a predefined set of questions pertaining to the category.

@utopian-io should halt the addition of new members to the Spanish team until a solution is found for the upvote problem.

Just these last 15 days there have been 10+ contributions from my team of translators that did not get upvoted.
