Proposal description

This is a cross-post from the Dash Forum

This is a continuation of the marketing budget started in July adjusted to the current exchange rate https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/proposal-marketing-international-outreach-promotion.9218/

This marketing budget proposal will provide continued funding for our language translators, funding for translating our wiki and videos, and is supporting marketing sponsorships in Brazil and China. The language translators translate a massive amount of material on a monthly basis, including relevant news articles, videos (voiceover and subtitles), web pages, and local wikis. In addition, these individuals post materials to local chat groups and social media. The four main languages covered are Russian, Chinese, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Translators are compensated with tips based on the volume of material and other outreach they perform for the community. We have been running the program for about a year and it is effective at increasing our international exposure.

The requested amount is expected to be an ongoing need to maintain these translation services, international media, and promotion efforts.

Requested funding is as follows for the November 4th budget cycle:
Total: 250.84 Dash

Note: Should any funding remain after the project is complete, we will reserve those funds for future marketing projects.
