Effect.AI — Newsletter January 2020

Jan 31, 2020 · 5 min read

Dear Community,

2020 is shaping up to be a big year for Effect.AI, as we’re embarking on ambitious plans for our network of Artificial Intelligence. This first month has been productive, and will provide a solid foundation for our services in translation and subtitling. As bringing more tasks to Effect Force is a main objective, we’re pleased that 33,499 tasks were completed in January by our community members. They also translated and transcribed 39 videos on Rosette.

In this newsletter we’ll first take you through the recent changes to Rosette, and talk about the improvements to the translation workflow. Then we’ll dive into the upcoming referral campaign and show you how to get prepared. We’ll recap the monthly AMA that was recorded last Thursday and, most importantly, look ahead at the next steps!

Rosette Progress

Our translation engine is up and running, and we’ve overhauled the subtitle and transcription process to make tasks better for our translators. Visual changes were introduced to the transcription and translation tools, and you will soon see a full end-to-end redesign of the backend of Rosette. To improve the customer experience for orders, checkout and overall experience we will also be releasing a fully redesigned frontend (website).

Translators are an integral part of Rosette. We’re continually making improvements to balance the needs of a diverse workforce and are incorporating cutting-edge technology during this process. To guarantee high transcript quality, we have also updated our proofreading and grading systems.

These system and process updates will ensure that Rosette can grow as required in the coming months.

Preparing for the Rosette Referral Program

The Rosette journey was always meant to be guided by a community driven Referral & Affiliate Program to promote the Rosette services to the world. As the setup and organization of the program is being finalized, it’s time to prepare yourself and get a head start. In the next 2 to 3 weeks we will be releasing the Rosette Affiliate Program to the entire universe. In the next few days, Effect.AI community members will be given a head start on the registration processes to get a sneak peak on how the program works and how to create your riches from it!

What’s important to know about the program, is that it’s a multi-tier affiliate system. This means that when you onboard new affiliates you’ll always receive rewards for the efforts of people you introduce to the program. That’s right: you’ll receive part of their rewards forever. This provides a huge benefit for early adopters and promoters of the program. No no no, it’s not a silly pyramid scheme… It’s based on the margins of the Rosette service being distributed amongst the promoters (Affiliates). It is how most online Affiliate programs work. All the information, terms and conditions will be available very soon!

At the core of the affiliate program is identifying YouTube channels that could benefit from subtitles.

3 steps to get prepared:

  1. Make a list of YouTubers you are sure could benefit from Rosette multilingual subtitles or the translations of their YouTube video title & Description
