Use part of 350k CVP from 14-th Proposal (Proposal 14: Use 350k CVP from canceled testers allocations to create strategic community rewards pool) to incentive translations of PowerPool medium articles and all the significant content created by community or team (infographics, instructions, web-site etc.) to other languages.
UPD: Proposal 19: Smart Ecosystem Fund
There is another proposal that will probably go live on voting soon so key info and conclusions are here.
All the info about research that has been done for this is here - Crypto adoption + English proficiency statistics
How to make it happen?
Translating crypto articles is not easy: a lot of words pretty hard to translate but it has to be done because your compatriots probably won`t understand them without the professional translation. Of course, anyone can use services for machine translation but if you try to do it, you probably will not be satisfied with the result because 100% of machine-translated articles have to be finalized by the translator.
In PowerPool we build a strong community that grows fast and we have to know much more about the products that PowerPool already released or will release. But how this community can be built if so many people can neither read nor write in English?
We need to create a community of translators inside the PowerPool community for this purpose.
“As “Democracy cant exist without rewards”, we can hardly expect the most active community members with relevant skill sets to allocate enough time to work on numerous tasks for PP without a clear understanding of what can they earn.”
So this can be the first part of Ambassador`s program and first step to incentive contributors.

All the translators joins server PowerPool translators : https://discord.gg/dxFfVUPZhY
This is a place where we will discuss articles in terms of translation, share tools for work etc.
Every translator will set a nickname on the server like “nickname_language” . For example “Getmegone_RU”. Plus, we will rename our Medium accounts to “official” PowerPool accounts for every native language. For example “PowerPool_RU”. All the original articles will contain links to this medium accounts.
Leveling system : there are gonna be roles on server depending on the amount of translated articles for PowerPool:
Common translator: 0–24 articles translated;
Uncommon translator: 25–49 articles translated;
Rare translator: 50–74 articles translated;
Epic translator: 75–99 articles translated;
Legendary translator: 100+ articles translated;
Raid boss: 200+ articles translated.
All these roles affects the salary.
Deadline : 48 hours from the moment of publishing article in https://t.me/powerpoolcvp if original article was posted from Sunday to Thursday to the moment when translation posted in “lang-request”; 72 hours from the moment of publishing article in https://t.me/powerpoolcvp if original article was posted from Friday to Saturday to the moment when translation posted in “lang-request”; if deadline is violated by 24 hours, translators get 75% of the regular payment for this article; if deadline is violated by 24 + hours, translator gets 50% of of the regular payment for this article. We can face some exceptions like https://medium.com/powerpool/understanding-value-of-cvp-token-and-meta-governance-value-creation-pattern-a530d1a1dec1 (huge article with a very tough text);
No full-machine translations : once per month I will check random translations from every translator. I will translate original article into native language of translator witl google translate (or any other machine-translator if needed), then compare it with the text from translator with this tool https://textcompare.ru/app . If the Levenshtein distance gonna be less then 1000 (let`s start with this number, I need to backtest on my own translations) I will assume that this article was almost fully translated with a machine-translator.
Payment : Imo we should pay according to the amount of words from the original article and level of the translator:
Common translator: 0–24 articles translated; 0.025 CVP per word in the first 24 articles translated
Uncommon translator: 25–49 articles translated; 0.03 CVP per word in next 24 articles translated.
Rare translator: 50–74 articles translated; 0.035 CVP per word in next 24 articles translated.
Epic translator: 75–99 articles translated; 0.04 CVP per word in next 24 articles translated.
Legendary translator: 100+ articles translated; 0.045 CVP per word in next 100 articles translated.
Raid boss: 200+ articles translated. 0.05 CVP per word in next articles translated.
How to pay translators
Every month I will ask every translator to fill the table like this https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wwZ0pjP86WzhYPvf_YvZNOl5mNg0IKHAomPQ5JHoA2I/edit?usp=sharing with info about:
- links to the translated articles
- time and date of releasing article in “official” Medium of native language
- Discord nickname
- Wallet address
All this has to be done in the first 5 days of each month.
After that I will have 5 days to check 25% of all the translated articles randomly with https://textcompare.ru/app to check if the translation was made with or without machine-translation. Also I will check comments in medium to figure out if there are some negative comments devoted to the quality of translation. If the Levenshtein distance is below 1000 (this number can be changed after the backtest of all my translations) translation will be declined. If the deadline was violated, the amount of CVP per article will be recalculated. After my approval team sends on my wallet the amount of CVP needed to pay for translations and I will send the “salary” per last month to every contributor.
And all the translations eligible for rewards will be posted in special category “Ecosystem Fund” on Power Forum in order to be checked by Community revisors due to Proposal 19: Smart Ecosystem Fund
Also I get 10% share of the total amount CVP paid to translators for every month due to my time spent creating a community of translators, checking their quality of job, sending payments, gas fees etc. So it’s about 315 CVP per month additionally if we have 10 translators.
