If you can’t solve a complicated problem for yourself, solve a bigger problem for somebody else that helps with the complicated problem. – translating Drakon documentation into English

*If you can’t solve a complicated problem for yourself,

Here’s what I just did:  I translated a 20 Chapter book, Chapter by Chapter, of the Russian Documentation for #Drakon  into English and put it up on myhttp://icopiedyou.com website – complete with the pictures and stuff.  [I had to open Outgoing connections to the site hosting the book so I could grab the images… but they seemed trustworthy enough].

Why?

Well, because it’s sitting on a Russian Wiki in Russian and while I can read a little Russian I’d really ratherread it in English.

Google translate worked perfectly, mostly because the guy’s writing was very clear and not complicated.  Theconcepts might be complicated but how he describes them translated well.

How do I know they translated well?

Because I understand them!

So while I didn’t solve the problem for myself yet, (which is llearning this visual language through and through), I did solve a bigger problem for somebody else. (which is “Boy, I sure wish I could get this WHOLE BOOK in English!”).

Or maybe it’s a smaller problem.  Either way, it was faster and more satisfying.
