Davinci Translation Reports: Week 8 and New Recruiting Window

in witness-update •  3 months ago

Greetings from @davinci.witness!

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

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

It was a quiet week, with only few translation. The drop in activity is probably due to the summer holidays, but this was something that we expected. In the coming days, we will be reviewing the old and all the new applications (the recruiting window opens from August 24th-29th). From next week we will probably add new translators and we may form new teams. On a particular note, the arabic team is one of the most prolific teams and we decided to expand it, we will need more translators for the arabic language and we are looking also for a second LM for the team. We also want emphatise that despite the average translations post decline, that we're happy with all of You! Keep going!

As a witness, we are doing our best to foster the growth of smaller communities and we are delighted to help. Help us by Voting davinci as a witness. VOTE US
