Ok, part about translators and translations:
- reminder that everything is posted here about translations in details - Proposal 17: Translator`s value proposition for PowerPool
- Info about all the translations that has been made by me and Alb are here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wwZ0pjP86WzhYPvf_YvZNOl5mNg0IKHAomPQ5JHoA2I/edit#gid=1271808783
- I didn`t fill the “is deadline exceeded?” for @alb2001 yet, it will be done soon, but I offer not to cut in half rewards for Alb in cases when he exceeded deadline cuz there was no deadline yet (I just se it for myself and I hope it will be approved for next proposal);
- also I offer to take into account the amount of translated articles in leveling system which helps to keep experienced translators in PowerPool ecosystem (again, all the info about it in my proposal).
- amount to pay (posted in google docs but I will also post it here cuz it probably goes to proposal about fund):
October: Getmegone - 235.65 CVP, Alb - 235.65 CVP;
November: Getmegone - 429.225 CVP, Alb - 402.7 CVP;
December: Getmegone - 255.87 CVP, Alb - 252.43 CVP;
January: Getmegone - 69.21 CVP, Alb - 69.21 CVP.
Total for translations: Getmegone - 990 СVP, Alb - 956 CVP.
If community accepts my offer to reward me for creating community of translators (we got Russian, Spanish, French, Hebrew, Chinese, Turkish language translators already), creating rules, tracking quality of translations and deadlines,
monthly reporting on the amount of awards for translators and my services as a leader of this area, then, according to my proposal №17, I ask for 10% of the all the other translators rewards for this services. Atm there is only Alb`s translations being counted, so its 95,6 CVP plus to 990 CVP and its 1085,6 CVP total for Getmegone and 956 CVP for Alb.
If team needs wallet addresses for payment I will share them in DM. I offer not to share it with everyone cuz its kinda personal information and will help to avoid possible fraud.
I offer to count and reward all the other translations that already has been made by all the other translators in February payment. I will collect all the info and share it later accordingly to my proposal.
And there is a text for proposal about translators:
Languages for future translations: Russian, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, Portuguese, Korean, Malay, Turkish. due to 17-th proposal. Can be changed if community asks to add French and Hebrew. If this languages accepted by community, I will find translators for them and integrate translators in PowerPool ecosystem.
“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.
Here how I suggest to do it:
- All the translators joins server for 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_country” . For example “Getmegone_RU”.
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 affect 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.
Let’s give an example (this data is current on 27.12.2020):
I started translating PowerPool articles since the 9-th of October 2020 (https://getmegone1991.medium.com/ )
I translated 6 articles in October, its 9426 words, all the articles were translated in the first 24 hours after the original article was released in PowerPool medium. 9426*0,025 = 235,65 CVP;
I translated 18 articles in November, it is 18290 words, all the articles were translated in the first 48 hours after the original article was released in PowerPool medium except the biggest one (https://medium.com/powerpool/understanding-value-of-cvp-token-and-meta-governance-value-creation-pattern-a530d1a1dec1) which had 3344 words. This one was translated in a week. (18290–3344)0.025 + 33440.0125=373,65+41,8=415,45 CVP That` s 24 articles translated already and I leveled up to Uncommon translator
In December I translated 4 articles, it`s 4466 words. All the articles were translated in the first 48 hours after the original article was released in PowerPool Medium. Now I get 0.03 CVP per word.
4466 * 0.03 = 134 CVP
So for 29 translated articles I will get 235,65+415,45+134= 785 CVP. That`s for two months of translating articles. Or 392 CVP per month average.
If there are gonna be for example 10 translators, it’s gonna be 10 translators * 392 CVP per month = 3920 CVP per month or 3920 * 12 months = 47100 CVP per year total. We can set up 10 most popular languages for translation or even more if we want to. Of course we need to keep in mind that over time rewards will grow due to leveling system. But this is necessary incentive for our job.
7. 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 sharing this kinks in “lang-request”
- 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.
Also I would like to 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.
