Through continued donations and support from the city, we’re thankful to
have been recently able to distribute over $15,000 USD worth of bitcoin as a
gesture of gratitude to individuals who volunteer to greatly help translate bitcoin.org and
spread the term about Bitcoin. Every month, contributors are helping localize
bitcoin.org in order that more people all over the world can easily begin and
find out more about Bitcoin within their own languages.
Ways to get involved
Anyone who’s fluent in a language that isn’t English might help translate the
site. You will get started by carrying out a few basic steps:
Develop a free Transifex account.
Browse to the bitcoin.org translation
project, discover the language
you’re fluent in, and join the translation team connected with it.
Once you’re on the team you can begin translating. Visit the
“Dashboard” at the top of the page, then to “Languages” and choose your
language. You will notice plenty of different resources and their progress. Each
resource includes a amount of strings. A string is really a “string” of text on
bitcoin.org. The initial resource (“bitcoin.org”) contains all strings for the
main site. You can begin there.
Join the Telegram group, feel absolve to
introduce yourself and let people know for those who have questions. 🙂
As well as the many volunteers, most of the advances and recent progress in
the translation project wouldn’t be possible minus the help of Simon
Hinterreiter and Koichi Hendrawan, who help manage and organize the translation
project, and also the teams.
A particular thanks can be owed to Transifex, for providing us with special access
with their platform.
Bitcoin.org was originally registered and owned by Satoshi Nakamoto and Martti
Malmi. When Satoshi left the project, he gave ownership of the domain to
additional people, separate from the Bitcoin developers, to spread
responsibility and stop anybody person or group from easily gaining control
on the Bitcoin project. Since that time, the website has been developed and
maintained by different members of the Bitcoin community.
Despite being truly a privately owned site, its code is open-source and there have
been a large number of commits from a huge selection of contributors from all around the
world. Furthermore, over one thousand translators have helped to help make the
site display natively to visitors within their own languages — now 25 different
languages and growing.
Bitcoin.org receives an incredible number of visitors per year from people around the globe
who would like to get started doing and find out about Bitcoin. […]
