Translate the White paper

On the official website of the ARK blockchain, you can find all the technical information about the ARK. In general, all this information you can find in a White Paper. In the ARK case, we can find White Paper only in English but we think this may not be enough if we want to enlarge the ARK community.

We suggest translating White Paper into Russian.




Why Russian?
According to data published in the journal Language Monthly, approximately 350 million people around the world speak Russian (which puts it in 5th place in terms of prevalence), of which 185 million consider it their native language (8th place in the world).

So, we can reach about 30 million new audiences, who are usually easier to read important information in their own language. This audience will include almost all of Europe and, to be more precise, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, part of Germany, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Armenia and other countries. Now there are many Russian speakers in Ukraine, Georgia and other countries that were once part of the Union. A huge Russian diaspora exists in the USA and Canada. Now Russian is in second place after English in terms of prevalence on the global Internet.

Cost-benefit analysis

Funding Amount Requested

$16 per page with translation and design in ARK blockchain style.
$16 * 45 pages = $720


Launch Plan

We need to translate 49 pages and plan to do this as a part-time. This will take - 3 weeks.

Additional Information

Community Feedback

If we look at the example of other blockchains, we can easily find White Paper in Russian and other languages. As an example - Bitcoin, EOS, Tezos, Tron and others.

Hello Dan Gakh,

Thank you for submitting the proposal.

I'd like to point out that in most of Europe people don't speak Russian as written in the proposal; in Poland people speak Polish as well as in Latvia they speak Latvian, or in Germany people actually speak German.

I believe the request is a bit too pricy for the benefit it would potentially return at the current time and therefore from my side I'd reject the proposal.

Thanks for the proposal but I'm not in favor of using the funds for translations.
I like more technical projects and think English is good enough since its a common language.

Thanks for the proposal.
I think it's an interesting idea because it has some potential, Unfortunately you haven't been very explicit about the quality of the work you can offer.
Also, the sum you requested is a bit too high.

In case you would like to send a further proposal, I would suggest you to reconsider the requested funds and be as comprehensive as possible about your skills.

Please note that in this particular case, i.e. to publish and/or distribute the translated whitepaper, a review by ARK would be necessary. It would be inconvenient for ACF to pay for a job, which would be unusable if rejected. Therefore, in my opinion, if you would like to send another proposal, it would be opportune to consider in your milestones the work as completed and payable only after the eventual approval of the translation by ARK.

In view of this, I have to reject the proposal in its current form. I would be happy to review a possible resubmission.
