Davinci Translation Report #16 and new recruiting announcement

Greetings from @davinci.witness!

Thanks to @pab.ink for making this fantastic drawing!

This is report #16 of the translation activity conducted in collaboration with @utopian-io (you can find the previous report HERE).

We are pleased to see that the activity in the translation category is increasing substantially. In week 16 we had a total of 101 contributions and a total of 101,339 words translated!


September 30 2 018 -:- October 06 2018

Overall, we were able to distribute 7,383.75$ to our collaborators. The graph below displays the payout variation over time, from week 1 to week 16. The central line indicates the upward trend.

The average value paid for the word also rose to $ 0.07 thus pushing us closer to our goal of reaching $ 0.10 per word.

We still have a lot of work to do, and anyone interested in collaborating as a translator or Language Manager can post his application to our discord server by following the instructions below. We will review every application, when we find enough qualified applicants for a language we will form a team and we will contact you to check your availability. Therefore, it is important that you answer when we tag you on our discord server.

If your language already has an active team, you can also send us your application. The size of teams may grow and we will likely need to replace translators if they don't maintain a certain level of activity.

In this table (click to enlarge) you can find averages, medians, mode, minimum and maximum values related to this weeks.

Instruction for a correct application:
The application post should be posted from your Steem profile.
In the post you should tell us what are your qualifications and why you should be considered as a translator or Language Manager (LM). Moreover, it is mandatory to post a link to a voice recording of you speaking your native language and English. You can find more details on this post: https://steemit.com/witness-update/@davinci.witness/davinci-witness-update-6-utopian-io-translation-rewards-are-coming-back. Also, your post should contain the tag davinci-application. And after you drop a link to your application post in this room: #job-application-room on Davinci's discord server.

Please note:

Your translation contribution post is as important as the translation itself. Through that post you describe your activity to the Steem community (and to your followers). Please let's avoid copy/paste types of posts and try to make these posts as engaging as possible. We understand that it's not an easy task to morph a report into something interesting to read but we will also try to provide you with some tools that will help you in this task.
