How to Use Signiscape and Share Information with the World

 

Signiscape is a website where information from around the world comes together.
By simply using the site, the articles you write will be spread to the entire world. 

Signiscape users just need to follow this simple five-step process...

  1. Compose an article
  2. Choose the languages you want it translated into
  3. Set a payment amount for the translator
  4. Approve a submitted translation of your article
  5. Transfer payment to the translator

...to begin putting out multilingual information like never before.

Information in other languages will be published on the site immediately, so there's no need to create your own website; you can send information to the world as easily as any social media platform.

You can easily share business information, videos, product promotions, political updates, and more. Being able to post information comprehensible by the whole world means you can increase knowledge of your brand or name in record time.

Not yet implemented:

We plan to implement a system which would compensate authors and translators of articles based on the number of views the article receives. By sharing information of international intrigue, you will be able to earn money as well.

The composition interface is composed of the following editable fields:

  • Body    The content of the article. Formatting options such as font, embedding images/videos and inserting horizontal lines are found in the toolbar above the text field.

Once you have written your article, filled in the other fields and clicked Publish, your article will be made publicly available. On Articles page, it will appear upon selection of the filter of the language you have written it in.

 

Translation Approval

Translator's Note: From this point on, more screenshots appear. Due to the novelty of the site, I had not published any of my own articles, and so screenshots in English were difficult and sometimes impossible to capture. Where necessary, I have left in the original Japanese screenshots with captions.

Upon publication of your article in its original language, translations will arrive from the people of the world.
When a translation arrives, a number will appear on the Translations button in the Articles line on your Account page.
Click on one of the translations waiting to be approved (which would appear in a dropdown list below the original) to proceed to the payment page.

If there are no problems found in the translation you've chosen, click the Checkout button below the translator's name. Their current Translation Evaluation is also displayed here.
Should a translator at any point retranslate already-translated articles, their Translation Evaluation also reflects their experience in translations from non-original languages.

Translation Evaluation:     日本語-English(7019.15)
Checkout: 5000JPY

The credit card entry screen will then come up. Enter the required information to send your payment.

Spreading Your Article

Once you have an article and a translation, you can spread the URL on social media or other online platforms.
Once visitors reach the article itself, they don't even need another link to switch between versions.
