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. 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.

Requested funding is as follows for the February 3rd budget cycle:
Total: 178.21 Dash

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