    International Outreach :

    The international Outreach/ Translation programs is running since years, growing from very small efforts to more and different. As you can imagine it is a bit complex and i will try my best to translate this.

    We are now concentrating on the top 4 ‘foreign’ languages: Russian, Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese.
    as we are running dash.org in nearly all languages (Portuguese will be added soon - in the moment only 'News' available)
    Obviously our community is much further spread out than these 4 languages/countries, but we concentrate on these 1st (extensions are planned) as you need a decent size engaged community to make these efforts work.
    We started with Single Translators in each country, by now we are trying to extend this into teams in each country, as the workload with article/news translations and video (subtitle) translations is a lot and very time consuming.
    Single Translators are not only paid for translations but for community engagements, starting pages and chats , maintaining / updating, moderating, business engagements ,…..eventually managing a team (each one in each country). Each country ‘work’ different, as communities are culturally either investors or traders, meaning some are more engaged (and ready to volunteer) and others are not. Russia for example was always very engaged and active while china with the language and ‘firewall’ issues is a totally different story/approach.
    The main idea is to translate English News Articles into multiple languages, post it to those communities and have them spread this further in the local markets. We are working on video subtitles (if we can need - Voiceovers) as well, but they are a lot of work. We tried to help amanda with her videos, but 1 video per week is too much work for the single translators and so far only really possible with Russian (these guys are on it) - we still support where we can but can not do all videos all the time (timing and late deliveries).
    We are still on it - but need time. Dash School is already finished in Russian:
    https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/dash-школа-1-6.10801/#post-104677
    and partly in Chinese
    https://www.dash.org/cn/news/生活什么是区块链-达世币学堂-1-2-3-6-快来了/
    as always - 1 update triggers many other updates (pages)
    We are trying eventually to get the Wikis and such translated as well, but there are constant changes going on + very technical. it is on the list as many other things too
    https://dashpay.atlassian.net/wiki/
    + all translators helping on core translations (New/Old Webpage, Wallets, Mobile Wallets,….) as well.

    Translator Team in place organised by Alexy + Raico
    China is the hardest due to language and internet access barriers. We are working on china since 2 years + and made great progress. We were very active on 8btc (biggest crypto outlet in china) but recently moved our activities and page/forum to cybtc.cn as they are better.

    Main Outlets Official:
    https://dashpay.cn
    Due to the ‘great firewall’ (chinese could not access dash.org and /or download direct and save) we created a separate webpage , hosted in Hong Kong (accessibility for china). This page is purely for the Mainland Chinese Market and community, no google analytic or such are installed to stay ‘open’.

    Spain:
    no translator signed up in the moment - Funds are used for Spanish Tips or as needed funds for other International Outreach activities
    We are talking to many people, get frequent news, always get translated what we need eventually ,but have nobody signed up in the moment. I am talking to a couple people but nothing confirmed yet. This is growing steady due to venezuela and more south americans getting involved. (Telegram Group really helps)

    ("Main Outlets Official:" are pages i am updating myself - there are obviously many more out there for each local language which then uses the translated Videos/Articles to share on local pages and outlets)


    Statistics:
    I am really not a SEO person (i leave this to others), but the reports and understanding i gathered are posted.
    In general is comes down to the same:
    the price rises, huge engagement - price down , less (same in English)
    There are certain spikes in the charts bellow but that is more market related than some specific international News and such. These international communities need information, be it News Articles, or Team Updates, or Guides,….. as long as they are still smaller than english dash we should further try extend there, help and support.
    I measure activities more in engagement via Forum posts or Telegram Group activities, and direct communications, or view /comment numbers on social media (specially china and such)
    and different languages have different regions :
    we are just past the summer break
    ru is down, but it is probably bacause of summer. the news section (#15) has less pageviews, but it performs better than ru main (-8% vs -49%). time spent grows
    es grows a lot. summer is not that important in this case because in latam it is winter. Venezuela interest probably have helped a lot.
    pt obviously grows because their specific version was launched in July :)
    cn is always impossible to understand becuase of the other site / dashpay.cn with no analytics and all the chat groups!

    Personal Thoughts:
    This project takes a lot of my time and efforts from the members involved, as there is so much communications with different groups of people involved , postings and sharing and likes and subtitles and back and forth .... but it works great in the long run and keeps a steady flow of updates/news/posts into the foreign communities. This really brings the english Dash PR efforts to a lot of other communities, and encourages them to build their own pages and chats as now there is news to share and something to talk about , ....... there is still a lot to do , we are defying our systems and hope to push this into other languages + different projects soon.
    Lucky we have a lot of help from the community and team members - volunteering in support and advice
    (special tx to @alex-ru, @studioz, @Alexy + all translators and team members i do not post as i did not ask for permission/privacy - we could not do it without you ! )

    If other people /languages are interested in joining as french, greek, german, still looking for spanish too,...
    please reach out to me direct.
    We need local language skills, but even more important - good english, understanding of Dash, involfment in community, social media postings and sharing (engagement) and interested in expanding the community in their country / language..... ;)

    For the record, I translated all 6 Dash School videos into French (subs) and I am planning to do the same for other Amanda's videos.

    Hey guys,

    If somebody want to use our (Russian) experience how to organize your local effective teams of translators for your language - feel free to contact me - I have some "know-hows" to share with you. :)

    If you want to monitor all Russian translations and publications, you can do it HERE (with dates and URLs) (by the way - having such a "List of ALL RU publications" - is very affective tool for Dash Promotion for all languages - "1 Link to share" - so easy to use - I highly recommend to use this tool for all other languages).

    Some statistics of RU translations in 2016:
    Month - symbols
    January - 65111
    February - 67894
    March - 67536
    April - 59967
    May - 80921
    June - 72825
    July - 74563
    August - 196876
    September - 187960 (and going on)

    I prefer organizing publications of our translation not on Dash official outlets, but on popular Russian Medias with big number of visitors to cover maximum and different RU-audiences.
    For examble each publication about Dash on the most popular Russian IT-blog Habrahabr gives us several thousand and in some cases tens of thousands Ru-readers.

    Thanks to all Ru-translators-team members (there are 9 already) and @tungfa for their help.

    dash details (great show) is too much content and volume for us to handle on a weekly bases (i mentioned that in the OP as well)
    we are working on subtitles for Dash School and specific projects with amanda
    subtitles is already a lot but voiceovers is definitely way beyond our capacity for now !
    (specific projects yes - but not 1 a week)

    Would be good to streamline the work so that the flow of the translations could be automated somehow. Release -> Transcription -> Tranlsation. I think most of the project is too manual and relly on individuals rather than teams, is hard to pick up the slack like that. Will try to help on what I can with this.

    There are 50,000 Chinese uni students in Sydney. If you want i could hire a female post grad, and do a voice over for the entire dash school series. There is a recording studio the local community centre. We could book it out for the day and go through the whole series.

    I am trying to get some of the users from DASHes on telegram to sign in the transifex team for Dash Videos. If the manager can create the dash school videos and upload the translation strings we would get going at it, as soon as possible.
    I have the first video already translated, only some wordproofing needed.
