Without support for Asian languages in Eternl, we exclude ~1.45b non-English speakers from the Cardano system. While Asia accounts for 52% of global growth in tech-company revenues in the last decade.
Translate Eternl to 6 Asian languages with professional translation services and help from our community.
This is the total amount allocated to Translate Eternl
With the upcoming overhaul and the development of Eternl v2 we want to prioritize multi-language support.
We will provide an interface that allows professional translators and volunteers to efficiently translate all texts in the application.
Eternl v1 currently has 3300 sentences with about 22000 words and we propose to add the following languages to v2:
We would like to expand Eternl’s user base in Asian countries, and an interface with multiple languages from this region will significantly help to bring them into the Cardano ecosystem.
Overall, we aim to support Mandarin and Cantonese, Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, and Korean languages.
This multi-language module will be part of the development of Eternl v2 and therefore depends on the success of that project.
The team at Eternl does not have members from East Asia. We therefore rely on community members to help us identify wrong translations.
The development of Eternl v2 is a long, iterative process.
During that process, we will develop a user interface that allows professional translators and volunteers to efficiently translate texts into their respective languages.
The key milestone will be reached, if we release Eternl v2 with at least 3 of the 6 proposed languages.
Languages that are initially not included will be added within 3 to 6 months after the release of Eternl v2.
Developer cost: $10000
For the purpose of an efficient translation process, we will develop a specialized user interface.
Translations: $36000 (6 languages)
For an average price of $0,135 per word, 22000 words, and at least two translations per language to ensure the quality, we estimate around $6000 per language.
The team consists of Tastenkunst GmbH employees as well as freelancers.
We might come back in one of the next funds to add support for other languages, like African or Latin American languages.
Each new language added to Eternl will add to the progress of this project.
This project will be a success if all 6 proposed languages are included in Eternl v2.
This proposal is a new one.
Professional translation services will support the translation of Eternl into 6 Asian languages. In addition, several members of the community have already offered to help with translation into their respective languages.
