Hello, masternode owner.
We’ve thus far been approved to receive funding for Spanish and Russian subtitle translators, and we’ll begin publishing those this week (Dec 7). You can expect to see the translated subtitles available within 48 hours of each Wednesday’s video going live.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have a translator of both Mandarin Chinese (mainland China) and Cantonese Chinese (Hong Kong) reach out and offer to translate at the same rate as my Spanish and Russian guys: 0.1 Dash/video minute.
Since we publish an average of 88 minutes of video per month,
Here’s where some special effort comes in: as you may or may not know (I didn't know until about a month ago), YouTube is blocked in mainland China. Their version of YouTube is YouKu, where Dash has a limited presence. The Dash YouKu page (at http://i.youku.com/dashpay) has been maintained by a volunteer so far, who uploads DASH: Detailed videos from time to time. YouKu doesn’t support subtitles, so special videos must be made with the Mandarin text spliced right into the footage itself (as seen below).
18 Dash for translated subtitles
30 Dash to remake/re-upload text-embedded Mandarin videos for YouKu
5 Dash reimbursement of proposal fee
GRAND TOTAL = 53 Dash
We've proposed funding for one month only. If the Russian, Spanish, and both types of Chinese all go well, we’ll submit them all as a package deal next month. Additionally, if both we and the Dash network would like to continue DASH: Detailed after our current 6-month agreement expires, we’ll add these translation costs into our overall show proposal for simplicity.
Thanks for your consideration.
