    You’re project is good, translating the website to Hindi is important, but I find your rates too expensive. You’re asking for $2000 for 4 995 words, which means your rate is about $0.4/word. Market rates are around $0.1/word. 4 995 can be translated in 3-4 days. $2000 for 3-4 days of work is quite juicy…

    Hi! You have good arguments and proposal, but I suggest to thing about the budget. I understand why is so important to translate the website into Hindi language. India is a very improtant and big market in cryptocurrencie world and SmartCash need a big community and a lot of promotion to help indian people to adopt SmartCash very soon. If the website is in Hindi this can be possible. Good luck!

    Isn’t it true that English is the second official language in India? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/India#Languages) Considering this, your project can’t be described as high-priority and generally you shouldn’t price your services that much higher than average market rates.

    Hello guys, I appreciate your arguments but let me explain some points that might not be clear enough In India english is used for business and administration, although a lot of people speak english it’s not the majority and in my point of view you would be excluding millions of people who don’t have a proper english education. We should bring SmartCash to as many people as possible and make it easy even for non technical people to use it. In the discussion thread for this proposal it was pointed that other websites should also be included that are not present on the initial list which also increases the word count and thus decrease the price per word. I’m not sure where you got this estimation of days of work and price per word, but you can check trusted websites like (https://www.transfluent.com/en/pricing/) and you can see that an average is 0.24€/word for this type of technical translation.

    ridiculously overpriced for a non-target group.

    Thank you for your proposal. Why do you want the half of complete amount before starting to work ? Why not a milestone by translated page for example ?

    Per the website that the creator linked, the going rate would be $0.18/word and yet he wants $0.4/word..
