Should @leofinance Create Language Specific Front Ends?
This is an idea I have thought about briefly. It made a lot of sense to me and now I'm asking the community what they think about this. Although I specifically mentioned https://leofinance.io front end, this could be relevant for any other popular front end like @ecency @peakd etc. or front ends on BLURT.
This is not some revolutionary idea. You must have come across this on many multi-lingual websites. This is something we could implement on HIVE, BLURT etc.
Separate Language Tags Needed
I was checking for some statistics out of curiosity and came across this:
There are many those who don't speak English in these countries. If there was a way to easily separate pages for them (eg: spanish.leofinance.io) and have authors specifically tag the language (eg: #leo-spanish) we could have some solid moves here. The competition is toughest in English. Focusing on other popular languages in crypto friendly regions could be an important step for @leofinance
@leofinance has been an excellent testing ground for many ideas. If this works out, we could have this implemented on other front ends. The entire blockchain ecosystem can reap the benefits.
I am not a web developer and therefore not very familiar with the complexity and resource consumption of creating these multi-lingual front ends. If it is not something that would take too many resources, I would love to see it in action while I spend my hours on the blockchain.

Answer the question at dpoll.xyz.
I would modify the question and say that HIVE should build different front ends.
Leo is a HIVE tribe that wants discussions focused on finance and cryptocurrency.
The language specific front ends should allow generic content; So, they should be HIVE front ends and not LEO.
It would be worthwhile to create region specific coins for each of the front ends.
A large number of users write their blog post in their local language and English. One could define the front-ends so that one could publish a post in one's native language and then create translations of the posts in other languages.
The posts could use the same same pictures and formatting. The system could then drop a link between each translation.
BTW, If I had designed HIVE, I would have built this ability into the framework of the platform. It is called localization. Unfortunately Dan failed to consult me before he created the blockchain.
That is what the hard forks are for. It is tougher to change the tires of a moving vehicle. The HIVE developers are probably focused on other things leaving regional content to front ends. It would be great to see some front ends with a language focus. Russian or Spanish language could be a good place to start.

I'm sure it won't be redundant. But, in principle, translators cope with the translation of sites, well, you need to avoid static inscriptions on photographs, images, skins of posts on Twitter. which translators cannot translate.

there should be a translate button like on twitter
This could be achieved with a browser extension if you are in a hurry to experience the feature.
I use a whole set of extensions for translation, and in blogs it should be at the interface level
