Yes, I’ve seen a lot of effort in translation of docs and similar tech documentation.
But my concern is that lot of people are excluded from discussions like this. I feel excluded too. I speak English quite well, although in my everyday life I’m not using it a lot and you can easily tell I’m not native speaker. I don’t need translated docs, I can read it well, I understand devcon talks if I pay some extra attention and so on.
And I have problem participating in forums like this which require even better command of written English and very broad vocabulary as topic we’re discussing are complicated. Many times I feel (even now) that I cannot express precisely whats on my mind, that things that I write are crude (probably not the best word), that it requires more effort from reader to understand my intentions and so on. Not mentioning the fact, that it takes me 3x more time to write in English and I’m still not satisfied with the results.
True participation is not when some elite discuss stuff and then translate some documents to other languages.
I don’t want to complain here and I don’t think that there’s easy solution. I just would like you to keep in mind, that some forms of participation (especially real time like telegram channels/slack/calls) are really hard for people who does not use English everyday.
BTW: I find it quite interesting that CFTC response was mentioned by @krisj.
I understand that the US is important country, but still it’s one of 200 countries of the world. And honestly I don’t feel entitled to engage with US agencies (Ethereum community in US is strong enough to take care of this task). World is US centric enough - that’s my personal opinion - and internet is US centric even more.
