#102 Website French Translation Proposal

By Karl Lohmann


Translation of the website & of 3 guides. "How to import privatekey from webwallet to windows wallet", "SmartRewards consolidation guide", "SmartCash Mining on Pool - A visual guide on how to set it up".


With an estimated 274 million total speakers, French is one of the most spoken languages in the world. Translating the website in French would allow us to reach them more easily. We are both native French speakers. We believe that translating does not pursue practical goals only. It is also about branding. It expresses a little something about SmartCash’s identity. Whereas a poor translation expresses neglect or even disregard, a good one is a sign of trustworthiness. It says: “welcome, feel at home!”. -Our first milestone is to translate the website and the 3 following guides: "How to import privatekey from webwallet to windows wallet", "SmartRewards consolidation guide", "SmartCash Mining on Pool - A visual guide on how to set it up". After finishing the translation, I will proofread it and harmonize it. The cost of our proposal is based on the following rates: $0,1 per word for translation, $1/100 words for proofreading. The small tip of $13.37 we will give to one of the authors of the guides is meant to incentivize the creation original content as well as motivate authors to allow translations (please refer to the pre-proposal discussion if you're interested in more details about how we calculate the tip and why only one author will get one). -Our second, third and fourth milestones consist of an ongoing maintenance during 6 months after finishing the aforementioned translations. During this time, we will translate all website modifications. Should there be only a few of them, we will translate interesting guides instead. Smarts will be distributed only after new translations and based on the same rate as the original translation, i.e. $0,1/word for translating and $1/100 words for proofreading. Every time a new translation is done, a detailed breakdown will be posted in the proposal thread. Finally we'd like to state that if Mastin's Multilingual Translation Hive proposal is approved, we will work within its framework.

Thank you for you time! Cknr7 & Karl
