Proposal description

This is a cross-post from the Dash Forum

This is a continuation of the marketing budget started in July 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. 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. We are now expanding to include French. The five main languages covered are Russian, Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, and French.

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 over 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. Note that we are requesting a reduced amount from the usual $2,600 this month because we've managed to save a portion of previous requests.

Requested funding is as follows for the January 4th budget cycle:
Total: 207.09 Dash

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