Your text requiring translation will appear here.

BitcoinZH proposes a simple workflow for translation, combining Github for collaboration and bitcoin for payment. The idea is adapted from Hackercouch.

Anyone can submit a translation request, and anyone can provide the translation and be paid at the address they provide.

  1. Request(Fork->PR->Merge->Publish)
  2. Work(Fork->PR->Merge->Publish)
  3. Payment in bitcoin (A to B)

This creates an permanent public record upon which to establish trust.

Number 3 Created with Sketch.
