DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Devtome Languages

One thing that most new writers of devtome ask is “Can I post an article in a language other than English?” The world of cryptocurrencies is everywhere, from China to Africa to the United States and Mexico. Devtome in other languages would greatly broaden the horizon for some writers for whom English is not their first language. At the moment, though, the answer is no, you cannot post in other languages. Some solutions, though, are listed below.

Adding Translator as a Job for Devtome

Many Devtome writers are fluent in both English and another language, such as Spanish, Chinese, or Russian. Devtome could allow writers to post in other languages, and translators, appointed by Unthinkingbit, could translate the writing into English. Devtome could have, for example, a Spanish section, and in each of those Spanish articles a link at the bottom would refer to an English translation by writers who are deemed competent enough in both English and Spanish. Each article could have multiple translations by different translators, so readers could see how the original, Spanish article, was interpreted by different people.

DokuWiki Translation Plugin

Devtome runs on the DokuWiki platform, and many plugins are made for DokuWiki. One of them is “plugin:translation”. It is available here. The plugin allows for each language to have its own namespace, so for example this page, “Devtome Languages” would be in English at:
http://www.devtome.com/doku.php?id=english:devtome_languages,
in Spanish at:
http://www.devtome.com/doku.php?id=spanish:devtome_languages,
and in any other language at:
http://www.devtome.com/doku.php?id=language:devtome_languages.

A writer can post his or her article in its respective language namespace, and translations of that article would be available in each of the other language namespaces. In this system, translators would just act as people who would edit wrong translations made by the plugin.
