ENS Domain Translations

I would really love to see the expansion in language translations. Quite limited.

I heard @alisha.eth talking about translations/translators in a Twitter space yesterday.
She said that she received quite a few messages from people willingly to help on this topic.

Now with the Stewards elected, and working groups/topics are being formed I think this will see progress in the upcoming time.

Note to working groups: Alisha also received a message from me, willingly to translate. :wink:

Hook me up for more info.

Hello Community,

I have nominated myself to lead ENS Domain Translations from English to Spanish. I will work with the Community WG stewards (@Coltron.eth @spencecoin @Limes) to translate relevant ENS material from English to Spanish. I will work with two additional contributors from the ENS Spanish Channel to help translate the documentation.

Suggestion to use this tool for Translation Services work:

Hello Folks,

I’ve nominated myself to lead ENS Domain Translations from English to Turkish. I’m currently working on Ethereum Whitepaper translation and Ethereum Glossary. I have over 50k words translated/transcripted on ethereum.org. I would like to collaborate with other community members soon and get it started.

Regards,

I’m interested to translate in French.
What tools do you recommend for tracking progress and working in groups on translation ?
What is the scope and priority of the documents to be translated ?

Maybe a common plan with the different parts to be translated would be practical to collaborate. For the translation of the ENS website, a simple Google Sheets was created.

The easier way would be using Crowdin platform.

Yes I agree with @ka2n. We can also have a look at Ethereum’s Translation Program and adapt their best practices when creating a Translation Program of our own.

I have a say about the prospective ENS Translation Program.
Decentralization is the zeitgeist!
In our translations, It is crucial to reflect the philosophical implications and potential applications of decentralism. We should approach the source documents not only as technical documents but also as philosophical essays. There is a great importance of underlining DAO values.
ENS is an integral part of Ethereum White Paper. It needs to be emphasized too.

Nice one! We both can work together to translate this, Juan. We will count on the formation of the Translation sub group to lead this effort.

We can also use Crowdin platform to create a translation program for ENS.

This seems like a neat idea. However, I’d like to see members from the ENS community rewarded, versus outsourcing to a translation group. It may be more streamlined/quicker to use crowdin, but I think we should give the opportunity to contributors within the ENS community. @Coltron.eth

@zadok7 I agree that we shouldn’t be outsourcing this outside of our community. Thankfully, Crowdin should allow us to gatekeep to translators within the ENS community.

From what I seen in the demos and messing around with the interface myself, it looks like a really powerful tool that would integrate into our existing repos and dramatically cut down on the management process.

@bobjiang and @estmcmxci have both expressed interest on leading the management of the translation group and have at least some experience with this type of work. I’m sure they could find a way to encourage contribution from within our own community.
