[INTRO] TranslateDAO call for translators

Hi my name is Evelina @fitz, recently I have finished working on translating the NEAR Wallet from English to Italian. This was released last week and now the Italian speaking community can set up and use the NEAR wallet.

I was wondering what other languages someone could choose to read the wallet in, and when I checked there were:

English

Italian

Portuguese

Russian

Vietnamese

Chinese

Turkish

Ukrainian

But there weren’t two of the most spoken languages in the world: Spanish and French. 7% of the world population speak Spanish and 3.6% speak French.

If there are members of the NEAR community that would like to help translating the wallet into these languages please let me know.

I propose to start a translation DAO and i will find members to help with translation work under my supervision.

The DAO will also take on paid translation work for any projects building on NEAR so if you want your website, article or documents translated we can do it!

In future, TranslateDAO will provide dapp localization - translate your dapp and increase your user base.

Let me know if you need help to communicate with non english speaking users.

Hello Evelina. Nice to Meet you. I’m a professional Translator as well. we did the Turkish version of the wallet (but with last updates there are some missing parts on json anyways it’s looking good for now)

I totally agree! we need them asap. wonder who’s gonna take that task and do it in most professional way possible for the community :smiling_face:

I remember some friends were trying to set up a translators hub, but idk what’s the status currently.
