Davinci Translation Reports: Week 10

in #witness-update5 years ago (edited)

Greetings from @davinci.witness!

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

This is report #10 of the translation activity conducted in collaboration with @utopian-io (you can find the previous report HERE).

August was a month of low activity for several reasons. We saw a slow-down in the translation activity due to several users were on vacation and due to the low steem price. Do not forget also the delegation issue that seems to have had an impact on translations category. The economic incentives should motivate translators to work at their best, however, we hope that this motivation won't be lost during possible fluctuations of Steem prices.

Yesterday we announced the activation of several new translators and the introduction of new languages in our portfolio. We are excited to see our community growing and more languages will be added soon. We also created a curation bot using in Node JS. This bot follows the translation posts and the reviews made by LMs (we will dedicate another post for this bot with further details).

We wish to take this opportunity to welcome all the new members and to remind you that the DaVinci team is at your disposal if you need assistance.

As a witness, we are doing our best to foster the growth of smaller communities and we are delighted to help. Please consider voting our witness to support us

Thank you, we do our best for keeping you up to date with the progress of the work

very nice think-

congratulations for the great work done this week! @giornalista

The rate of USD/word is pretty high considered the added benefit of the blockchain and the over-time sustainability due to SP increase/user voting power.
Top Professional translation services pay in the 0.08/0.10 per word, and that's usually for really technical or engineering/medical stuff.
Great job!

thanks, I think it's great to be able to provide comparable rewards to professional services but I think it's also important to note that are providing a free service to open source software and we are also increasing the value of our blockchain since we are using it to provide services

That's hidden value indeed, I just wanted to pointed out that Steem Curation/Contributor system does really work and it's a great way to have beneficiaries in projects

Few production even this week, however the summer is finally ending and new members have been introduced! Surely in the next reports there will be a new stats increasing.
It takes time and constant work to stabilize this data.
We are certainly growing slowly but very well so we will soon see better results.
Personally I will work to raise up the Italian Team level.
Good job everyone!

thank you, I think we are going to see a rebound in activity. We enabled several new users and teams. Even more are coming as well, this category has a tremendous potential for growth and we will do what we can to make that happen.
