The current humanetech.community website was designed to be an archive of all the resources posted to the forum, to be filled in over time. It should reflect all our community activities and efforts of Building the Pyramids of Humane Technology. And also it was planned to be a space for members to (re)publish their humanetech-related blog posts, which we’d subsequently promote in our social media channels.
It did not work out that way. Maintaining the website with these objectives requires a lot of volunteers being actively involved on a continual basis. This didn’t happen and the website languished. The Humanetech Translation Program (HTC) provides a new purpose for the website, and we will design it entirely with this program in mind.
- Offer a multi-lingual website to present deliverables of HTC - translated articles - to an international audience.
- Offer HTC members opportunity to publish their own posts in mulltiple languages (same as before, but extended with HTP).
General characteristics of the site:
- Possibly a magazine style landing page layout that provides intuitive overview and drilldown.
- Categorization and tagging of articles, plus a full-text search function.
- Social sharing buttons so people can share article links to their own social media.
- Attribution facility of original sources/authors, as well as translators.
- Profile page where authors can present themselves in more detail.
- A general section explaining the ins and outs, rationale of humanetech, and introduction of HTC.
- Maybe a blog section about the program itself: results and insights, highlighting volunteers, etc.
Integration with the HTP workflow:
- Documentation section of the Humanetech Translation Progress. Onboarding of new volunteers.
- Ideally capability to start translation workflows from the site, suggest candidates (web forms)
- Navigation and/or integration of the Weblate platform (translate.humanetech.community)
More technical features:
- Zero trackers on the page.
- Follows accessibility (WCAG) guidelines.
