Posted this over on Facebook also, trying to get opinions:
I get regular e-mails, sometimes from readers in China, sometimes in Russia (other countries as well but those two most often), commenting how it’s hard for them to get some of endmyopia’s contents.
I do passingly wonder whether I need to get local servers and offer translated versions of endmyopia, and localized search engine optimizing, and uploading videos to local appropriate platforms.
Most of that would be just money (just, heh). I don’t know though how useful it would be, what kind of unforseen hurdles there may be (sorry Jake, you need a Chinese passport to open an account with our hosting services, etc), and ultimately whether we can even support a localized version of endmyopia. At some point it boils down to language, and so far I haven’t been motivated to learn Chinese (Russian though, could be easily convinced). Just based on the e-mail volume and pretty specific questions, running everything through translators could turn into a bigger project than I could manage.
Thoughts? Any Chinese / Russian / otherwise darlings here with first hand experiences?
