  • The story of the people
    • Start with Chinese team, Rich Zhao with first translation in 2018?
    • Quite for a while 2020... then Aneena, Renato, Tsujita-san
    • Maria, Ourmar, Arseney...
  • Short Promo Video (details below)
  • Call to action
    • How to get involved
    • Video of how to contribute

Promo Video Structure

  • Concept is video of translators, each speaking in their own language
    • Rich Zhao (China), Aneena (Malayalam), Renato (Brazilian Portuguese), Tsujita-san (Japanese), Maria (Spanish), Oumar (French), Arseney (Russian)...
  • Answer a set of standard questions that we can edit together
    • What's your name?
    • Who do you work for? (Company, institution or independent)
    • Which country do you come from, and which languages can you speak? (List as many as you would like!)
    • Why is Blockchain important? (1 sentence)
    • Why is translating important, in general? (1 sentence)
    • More specifically, why is it important to translate Hyperledger Fabric into your language (3 or 4 sentences)?
    • How do you collaborate with other people in your language? (5 or 6 sentences)?
    • Which topic did you most enjoy translating, and why? (Topic name, and 2 sentence reason)
    • What does it feel like to see your words in a translated topic?
    • What advice would you give someone who wanted to get started with translating?
    • Say "I'm inviting you to translate"!
  • Edit answers into 60 second promo video
    • Translate each answer
    • Might be nice to present in multi-lingual form
      • Maybe just some, rather than all?
      • Form below is basic concept, but needs to be coherent for each language reader

  • Pointers to next steps
    • Documentation
    • Sign up at Linux Foundation
    • Workgroup links
    • Rocket Chat
  • Guidance for Promo video contributors (thanks to Vladimir Alekseev for these)
    • You should answer in your NATIVE language
    • Questions follow blitz format so all answers should be short: 1-2 phrases, 15-20 seconds per question max.
    • Please name the question first, then pause and answer – needed for further convenience in video production
    • Basic principles for making video:
      • Light background (wall) is better
      • Quiet place unfortunately is a must – voice recording is VERY important here (inside your house/apartment is ok)
      • Camera should be on the eye level (tripod is the best option, but you don’t have it – you can easily engage your family to make more fun!)
      • Record upper part of your body
      • It’s better to choose more dark colours for clothes (pure black is not recommended as it’s not convenient in video production; brown, dark blue, green, red or purple is much better)
      • Clothes style does not matter (I do not think that anybody will decide to wear a tie..)
      • Please make horizontal recording
      • Please do Not put any light at the back, it’s much better to put light on you, as speaker, if possible
      • You can make 10 different recordings (1 recording for question) if it’s more convenient, or 3, or any number - your convenience is more important
      • Smiiiiiiiile :)
    • Other
      • Your speech will be cut to make mesh between different people and will be duplicated by subtitles, so please provide the translation to English.
