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

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 December 4th budget cycle:
Total: 305.72 Dash

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

Discussion: Should we fund this proposal?

Is there more details for the people like me that like to research. Two separate links to twitter accounts that use Amanda's videos isn't enough for me.

It seems like if the proposal is regarding marketing then it shouldn't be too much to ask about "marketing" this proposal. The link to the Portuguese youtube is very interesting. Can you share specific timelines where he has advertised sponsors (DASH would be perfect if already done before?)

Links to the translations already done would be great; extra points for github repos or wiki history.

Maybe I'm just too new here, but this is the third proposal in a row I've read of yours that is asking a lot without providing much assurance. It seems like you have done a lot of work and it wouldn't be hard to keep a basic link outline?

Could funding (group subscription + pizza for meetups) be considered part of Marketing and Outreach? I don't want to spend everyone's time and effort with a separate proposal for such small amounts but also don't want to pay out of pocket myself.
