in #utopian-io3 years ago


Translating 1,836 words of Steem White Paper from English to Filipino

  • Github Project Link: Repository
  • Project/Document Name: Steem White Paper

This is the second open source project that I contributed a translation activity and at the same time as an approved translator for Filipino language which is an initiative being spearheaded by @davinci.polyglot and @utopian-io.

Project Details

Steem Whitepaper
Anyone who is into blockchain or cryptocurrency platforms have heard about “white papers”. White papers is an important document which gives the potential users or readers the idea behind a certain cryptocurrency project and at the same time, it helps potential investors to know the goal of the project and what it aims to offer to the real world or perhaps what innovation or problem they are trying to solve in today’s market. It also helps people to identify the legitimacy of a certain project. And thankfully, for this report, I translated our very own Steem’s White Paper. It is an honour for me to localized this very important document to my native language which is Filipino.


Source Language - English is the source language of my translation project.
Translated Language - Filipino is translated language of my translation project.

  • Translation Overview:
    This is the first part of my translation on this project with a total of 12, 283 words this is a not a very huge project and I'm not the only Filipino's was translated of the Steem White Paper. You can see the total words of this project down below.

Word Count
The total words that I translate in Filipino is 1,962 words with 126 deduction words, because there are words that can not be translated such as a link, codes and all the words don't have a translation such as a computer words or and blockchain words. So the total words that I translate in Filipino is 1,836 words in this season I translate the file with the total words of 12, 111 words. Thanks to LM @ruah for proofreading my contribution.

Hi @marou27, Thank you for contributing to the Davinci-Utopian Translation project!
This is your 4th contribution to the translation category and 2nd contribution to @steem white paper translation.

  • I glad that you translated more than 1900 words this season, but I found some misstatement on some strings which lower your score this time.
  1. this string should be translated as Papunta sa matinding mga hakbang you don't have to put Ang on this translation. You are always free to ask your co-translator and Me if you are doubting on some of your translations.
  • Some strings are translated well, its so happen that I found in some strings maybe that part is giving you some hard times.
  • you can also use hindi masyadong laganap here instead of hindi napakalaki.
