Re: [tdf-discuss] Released LibreOffice For Dummies v2


Hi Klaibson,

Well that's a really low amount - I'd first question whether someone
would dedicate hundreds of hours (or thousands) for such a small amount
of money. In particular, if you're thinking of having it translated into
multiple languages where each individual translator might get a couple
hundred dollars (I've been quoted as much as $100/hr to professionally
translate work in the past).

I still think it'd be an uphill battle to get funding.

Here's an additional option:
https://www.documentfoundation.org/foundation/grant-request/

You can request a grant to fund translation. I'd suggest first talking
to people about the real cost of translating (what they would
contractually commit themselves to). Then you can write up a grant and
say you already have someone lined up to translate the material and the
cost that they quote. I think that this might be more feasible than
doing crowdfunding.


Warmest Regards,
Joel
