The Ethereum Foundation has announced the launch of a Korean version of its official website, which is now available at ethereum.org/ko.
The announcement was made alongside the launch of a large-scale translation program for Ethereum.org, which will translate the website and other resources into more than 15 languages. It follows the re-launch of the ethereum.org portal in April this year.
“Ethereum is a global project, and it is critical that Ethereum.org reflect our worldwide community,” the foundation said. “Since the website’s relaunch, our team has prioritized organizing a translation program that can ensure resources about Ethereum are accessible to everyone, regardless of their nationality or language.”
As per the official blog post, the translation program will be a combination of volunteer-driven translations, project management from the Ethereum Foundation team, and professional translation services where needed to fill gaps or to provide audits.
The initial focus would be on completing translations in Simplified Chinese, Japanese, Russian, German, and Italian. The foundation said that these languages were chosen on the basis of search volume for Ethereum and related terms, as well as traffic to websites related to Ethereum.
“While this effort is initially focused on translating Ethereum.org, over time it will expand to include translations of important community resources like documentation, guides, blog posts, and more,” it added.
In a recent interview with The Star, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin said that scalability is a major impediment for widespread adoption of cryptocurrencies, adding that “the Ethereum blockchain is almost full.” As to how this issued could be solved, he said:
“The main problem with the current blockchain is this idea that every computer has to verify every transaction. If we can move to networks where every computer on average verifies only a small portion of transactions then it can be done better.”
