Title: Biblepay Core Wallet Chinese translation (zh-CN & zh-TW)
Post by: sg316 on March 03, 2018, 02:32:57 PM
To increase the popularity and acceptance of Biblepay, we should provide multilingual supports as many as possible.  Chinese is one of the most important languages. Unfortunately, as you may know, the Chinese translation files of Biblepay Core wallet are not containing the correct content. In order to achieve this target, I'd like to provide the following works:


The original translation file is almost identical with Dashpay but the quality is very poor so I have to spend massive time to improve it.  I would also refer to the translation of Bitcoin Core wallet to ensure the best accuracy and quality.

I've spent about 15 hours for these tasks and I'd expect more works, e.g.  Biblepay specific translation, in the near future.

Budget request:
100,000 BBP * $0.003116/BBP = $311.6 = $20/hr * 15.58hr
This can be from PR or IT, wherever it's suited.

Hey Mate,

If it was to a vote, I would say no. China isn't exactly known for playing fairly, and your asking to translate code to make it easier for Chinese computer farms to understand and change if needed?

Does that seem fair?

I'd disagree with this on the principle that any Chinese person who downloads BBP wallet automatically has a bible built in that they can read. This is a fantastic step for Christians and interested people in China. I will vote yes for this translation

But as I understand correctly, this isn't a translation of the Bible, just the wallet, right?

I support any and all language translations, the goal in my eyes is to reach as many people as possible with BiblePay,

Only a portion of the world natively speaks English

"When combining native and non-native speakers, English is the second most widely spoken language worldwide"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_languages_by_total_number_of_speakers
Guess which language is #1? (Chinese)

List of countries by English-speaking population
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_English-speaking_population

"How Many People In The World Speak English?
Out of the world's approximately 7.5 billion inhabitants, 1.5 billion speak English that's 20% of the Earth's population.
However, most of those people aren't native English speakers. About 360 million people speak English as their first language."

The goal of this proposal is to help the people who can understand Chinese but have difficulty to use Biblepay wallet as it only supports English. I believe the more people start use Biblepay, the stronger community we would have.

It's a good idea to integrate the Chinese version of bible if the wallet starts support Chinese and it should be very easy to implement.

I think you should be able to get a free Chinese translation online.
It would be great to integrate this into the wallet!
