DaVinci Witness Update #6 - Utopian.io Translation Rewards are Coming Back

in witness-update •  6 months ago

We are thrilled and excited to announce the official launch of the Utopian.io Translation Category for the incentivization and reward of Open Source project translations fully managed by @davinci.witness.

The translations category in Utopian.io was paused for a long time due to the extraordinary challenge involved in managing a team of translators and moderators for a growing number of languages. We at @davinci.witness decided to take on this challenge, and endeavour to create a global community of professional translators helping Open Source projects go global.

A few days ago, we began screening candidates for the role of Language Moderators [LMs]. This is a critical role on the team, since the LMs will be our gatekeepers for quality and the ones reviewing every contribution made to the translations category on Utopian in their respective languages. Alongside the selection of team members (LMs) be also started reviewing the applications of translators eager to be pre-approved to contribute (Translators [T]).

Our main challenge in the process was a “good” one as we found ourselves with a selection with great candidates to choose from. It was no easy task, but we are confident in the skills of the ones we selected.

We received 130 applications, from translators in thirty different languages and were both delighted and somewhat overwhelmed with the massive interest from the community.

In the reviewing process, candidates were asked to:

  • Publish a Steem post in [AP] with their application text in both English and their mother tongue.
  • Record a video or an audio track to check their level of proficiency in English.
  • Tag the post with, #davinci-application.

For maximum transparency, every application was also posted on the #job-application-room on the DaVinci community Discord.

Presenting: Our Community Managers [CM]

To start their work on the team, our CMs reviewed every single application submitted with great dedication and skill. Ensuring the activity of the team is smooth as the category grows, we’ve agreed to start with the following 5 Languages (and expand the list in the future) and selected the LMs to manage them.

Complimenti ragazzi!

Congrats! I am happy to hear that a new organizational strategy is being implemented for translations. Which tool will you be using? Will you continue with Crowdin (as stated in utopian's website)? From my perspective as translator and localization specialist, using a translation management system is a must for the efficiency of the workflow. We call "(Translation) Project Managers" the people who select translators and assign translations while the person who oversees these PMs is called coordinator. But of course, naming is trivial, the real work and efficiency is important :)

@davinci.wintess This is truly an exciting time for us to watch the new launch again for the translation category in Utopian.io It's great that we can work together to make this possible to create a global community of professional translators for Open Source Projects.

hope in next round Urdu language will be added

Looking forward to serve the internet community
