INTRODUCTION

With the steady increase in the awareness, adoption and use of cryptocurrency in Nigeria, it is important that Smartcash is made known in major local governments, cities and states in Nigeria by communicating Smartcash related information to Nigerians in their major languages.

OBJECTIVE

PROJECT APPROACH

Milestones

Smartcash.cc and Brochure Translation: We will be embarking on a week smartcash.cc and brochure/white paper translation campaign which will enable us arrive at the goal of translating the entire smartcash.cc website and brochure into indigenous Nigerian pidgin English, Yoruba, Hausa and Ibo which is majorly spoken by Nigerians all over the country/world.

PROJECT BENEFIT

With the translated main smartcash website and brochure, it would be easy for Nigerians all over the world to familiarizes themselves with Smartcash and its utilities, this wouldn’t just be a boost to the community but also; Smartcash will be the first cryptocurrency to have translated their website and brochure/white paper into these Nigerian languages.

PROJECT TIMELINE

The required time needed for the execution of the project depends on the time it takes for the completion of each translation.

  • Website/Brochure Translation: from our calculation it was estimated that the translation of the Smartcash.cc website and brochure into Nigerian Pidgin English, Hausa, Yoruba and Igbo will take the team of translators approximately 1 week for the translation and proofreading of the translated website and brochure/whitepaper.

    Here is the link to the Smartcash brochure/whitepaper: https://smartcash.cc/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/SmartCash-v1.2.4.pdf

    this is a good one. I checked to see if there are nigerians who really read contents online in their indigenous languages and found out that BBC HAUSA has 2m likes on facebook. So, do you think with this, we would easily earn the attention of the indigenous nigerians the way BBC did?

  • coin-fairy 01/10/2019 15:04

    Yes! i believe so. Aside from BBC HAUSA there are lot of organizations/companies that have their contents in Nigerian languages which one out of many is Voice of America (VOA) which has roughly 1.6m followers on it's Voa Hausa facebook page. It has been proven through various research how intimate people are with their native language(s). Here is an example of such research from Cambridge University: https://www.cambridge.org/core/books/language-and-human-relations/introduction/D77927AE5411E47642B3185AA71FB12A# Aside from this; Smartcash would also be the first digital currency to have its website and brochure/whitepaper translated into the 4 Nigerian indigenous languages.

    Due to a suggestion from @Mark-Smartcash we will be translating the Smartcash wallet as well.
