One of the most important factors to the success of any project, is not just thinking about the next two steps that need to be taken - but the next twenty. Planning for long term growth is the key to laying the foundation in the beginning.
In our original announcement post - we said that we would be starting with 10 languages during the beta phase of the site, and then eventually expanding to more languages.
Beyond just educational videos on the site, we want the various language communities to have access to our announcements and information we share on our @steemonboarding blog. To do this, we have gone ahead and setup 33 separate accounts for the major languages that we eventually plan to have featured on the site. As the translation team grows for each language - we will also have people translating our Steem Onboarding posts to their native tongue on the respective channels. We may also use each language influencer to use this page to highlight promising new users in their respective regions - and run language specific contests.
Sky is the limit with these separate channels - but getting them all setup is an exciting next step. We want to ensure that people have a positive experience not only going through our learning modules, but once they arrive on the platform as well. Having a channel of Steem Onboarding content available in their native tongue will help them stay connected even after they have finished the education process.
Posting with Steempress
One of the main goals of Steem Onboarding is to not only provide a useful tool for new Steemians to learn the roles - but to also support all of the other dApps and communities that are built on the Steem Blockchain. We will be utilizing many different dApps and Steem User Interfaces to leverage our fundition campaign and support the greater community.
For those who don’t know - @steempress is a great tool for bloggers that allows them to easily cross post their blogs to Steem as well via a word press plug-in. This will be a really helpful tool for Steem Onboarding when we want our posts to also show up on the blog section of our site. We would highly recommend checking them out if you have both a Steemit account and a website or blog!
Language Accounts Claimed
Here is a list of the language accounts we have currently claimed that will be available for future use by Steem Onboarding.
