Greetings from @davinci.witness!

The DaVinci Witness has been collaborating with @utopian-io for the translation of open source projects. We believe that this initiative will help the whole Steem community because we are exploring the use of the Steem blockchain to provide services to the open source community.

We had to pause the recruiting of new translators for a while because we needed to restructure our rewards system and the resources at our disposal did not allow us to support more teams. The Utopian team has been very proactive in finding solutions and thanks to them we are finally able to activate more teams and consolidate old ones.

We have just closed a recruiting window and you can find the results below.

In the reviewing process, candidates were asked to:

  • Publish a Steem post [AP] with their application text in both English and their native language.
  • 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.

We consolidated the following teams with new applicants:

Team Arabic Enhanced

Team Chinese Enhanced

Team Dutch Enhanced

Team German Enhanced

Team Italian Enhanced

Team Polish Enhanced

* The user @szymciojazda has been replaced because of inactivity

Team Spanish Enhanced

The following new teams were formed:

Team French New

Team Hebrew New

Team Portuguese New

Team Serbian New

*(Click on the link marked AP to see the candidacy posts) - The other unmentioned teams remained unchanged

Please note:

We could enable new teams outside the recruiting window but the process will be gradual. If your team has not been enabled yet please continue to be patient, there will be more news soon.

Davinci.Witness team is pleased to have you in our project and wish you all the best!

Welcome to all the teams!

I'm honored to become part of the team and glad that I'll be able to engage even more into the blockchain space. I'm sure great achievements are bound to come in the future and it's exciting to be part of it.

To everyone joining the portuguese team, welcome!

Looking foward to work with you!

@leurop, @mrprofessor, @martusamak

Hopefully we Will increase the team soon!

Yeah! Great! Hope to star working with you soon!

Boa! Espectáculo! Espero começar a trabalhar convosco próximamente!

Quando surgirem tarefas, como seremos contactados para participar, phgnomo?

Até amanhã eu vou ver como as coisas estão funcionando agora, com as traduções funcionando através do @davinci.witness, e ai escrevo um post explicando.

Mas a princípio temos que aguardar a ativação nas páginas do @utopian-io para inciar as contribuições (ainda não chequei se já estamos liberados).

Assim que entender direitinho como tudo está funcionando, eu publico um post explicando melhor os detalhes.

De antemão, se ainda não tiver, já crie uma conta no, pois as traduções estão sendo feitas por lá.

E se nada mudou do @utopian-io, cada um escolhe o projeto em que irá trabalhar.

Segue essa conta e a @phbr (a que irei utilizar para os trabalhos no @utopian-io) que vou anunciando as novidades.

Além disso, pode me contactar no Discord como phgnomo.


The Portuguese team with 2 users are from Portugal and 2 from Brazil? Is anyone expecting a proper translation for a team with 2 different language flavors? Portuguese from Brazil and from Portugal are way more different that english from UK and US, they are incompatible specially in the written form. Language system managers from Utopian need to realize that translations are not an easy system to setup and must follow standards when creating language teams, this can't be just popular votes. Else there will be no credibility on any work done!

I've got a point! I see what you mean. But on the other hand we got a team of 4 with half of the members being from Portugal and the other half from Brazil. For now the team is balanced. Hope that in the future the team grows or gets divided in 2: one of portuguese from Portugal and other from Brazil. And lets not forget the other portuguese speeking countries. Let's see it this way: we had no team, and now we have one. I hope this team becomes the begining of something bigger for the portuguese community in the Utopian world!
