As a Community Manager for Utopian, I will continue to write these weekly reports for the translation category. The report will include:
- Translators' Activities
- 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
Summary Overview for Week 48: Nov 22 - 29, 2018
A. Contributions Summary
1. Translators' Contributions
This week, we have 56 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 101 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 is the most active team with 13 contributions
- Followed by Polish, Greek, Serbian
- Then Dutch, Filipino, Chinese
- There are no contributions from Arabic, Slovenian, and German teams.
2. Post Contributions - 4 Weeks Comparisons
The following table shows the number of contributions in the different language teams for 4 weeks.
Week 45: 66 contributions
Week 46: 55 contributions
Week 47: 61 contributions
Week 48: 56 contributions
- There are 4 color bars for each language teams with each bar representing the 4 different weeks.
- The following teams are quite stable in their own ways: Spanish, Filipino, Polish, Serbian, Russian
- The following teams show signs of getting more engaged: Chinese, Yoruba,
- The following teams show signs of getting less engaged: Italian, French
3. Total Number of Contributions 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 (Dates: November 1 - November 29, 2018)
- Week 45: Nov 1 - 7, 2018
- Week 46: Nov 8 - 15, 2018
- Week 47: Nov 15 - 22, 2018
- Week 48: Nov 22 - 29, 2018
From the chart, we are able to see the situation of each language team in the spread of 4 weeks:
- Spanish team is most active in a consistent manner
- Followed by Polish and Serbian
- And then Filipino, Greek, Dutch, Italian and Yoruba
- There is no growth in Arabic, Slovenian, German.
These teams are stable in their own ways: Chinese, French, Vietnamese, Russian
B. Language Moderators' Scoring - Week 48
For the scoring distribution, we have 24 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 as it will get very messy. The following statistics will give the detail that is lacking in the chart.
- 78 - 15 contributions (Greek, French, Serbian, Spanish)
- 73 - 15 contributions (Chinese, Dutch, French, Polish, Spanish)
- 70 - 4 contributions (Spanish)
- 69 - 3 contributions (Spanish, Hebrew)
- 68 - 5 contributions (Polish, Spanish, Vietnamese)
- 66 - 1 contributions (Yoruba)
- 64 - 3 contributions ((Filipino, Italian)
- 61 - 2 contributions (Polish, Spanish)
- 55 - 1 contribution (Portuguese)
- 54 - 2 contributions (Polish)
- 51 - 3 contributions (Filipino, Russian)
- 49 - 1 contribution (Portuguese)
- 46 - 1 contribution (Yoruba)
- The highest score this week is 78
- More than half the contributions receive scores between 70 to 80
- A big proportion of scoring is at both 78 and 73
When the new questionnaire is implemented, the scores will better reflect the quality of the translations posts.
All contributions got voted this week.
The average score of the 56 Contributions is 69.
C. Staff Pick This Week
This week's staff pick is from the French team. It received a score of 78.
Translation Post by @alejohannes:
As noted by the moderator, the translator delivered an accurate translation with correct vocabulary. He was also careful in not translating code values so as not to alter the text true meaning. The presentation post was excellent, engaging and well formatted as he shared about what he learned in the process of the translation.
D. Translation Teams - 102 Members List
A few things happened this week as there were some restructuring in some teams.
F. Upcoming Events - Restructuring Teams
Although we have 102 members on the list, not all the translators are active. In the coming weeks, we will do some restructuring of the teams.
Presently, all our LMs are active. We also see the need of having 2 LMs in every team in order to keep the teams working at their optimal level. Slowly we will add another LM to teams that have only 1 LM.
Please comment and give your feedback as we work together to make the Translation Category great.
That's it for this week,
