Reward Monero translators

As discussed during various community meeting, this is the proposal to compensate translators for their work. It's important to keep in mind that these rewards are lower than the average market price (~$0.10/word). The point is to give contributors a token of appreciation not a salary, we would like to be the passion for Monero move contributors and not monery.  

I calculated the rewards keeping in mind the amount of words/strings and complexity of the text. If you think they should be increased/decreased or changed in any way, please comment. Any feedback about any section of this proposal is very appreciated.

Criterias

  • All rewards will be awarded only for complete translations for now. Complete translation = All strings of the mentioned document translated + at least 1 meaningfull complete review from another contributor.
  • The translation must be of high quality and must follow the guidelines of the localization workgroup.
  • The translation must folloq the guidlines of the related guide (all guides can be found on the repository: https://github.com/monero-ecosystem/monero-translations)
  • If a glossary exists for that language, its content must be used.
  • If the contributor has an ongoing FFS for a work related to the translation of a document/project, he/she is not entitled of any reward from this fund (no double rewards).

Transparency

This fund will be managed by me and I will release the rewards. For transparency, all transactions will be registered on a dedicated document publicly available on the GitHub repository of the Localization Workgroup (https://github.com/monero-ecosystem/monero-translations). This document will show: amount awarded, name/nick of the contributor, date, transaction hash(?), work that was made (with link to the pull/merge requests).  

The view key of the wallet holding the funds will be public.

I think i good start would be 50 XMR, but we can keep the request open and increase it once the goal is reached.

I feel like this seems really fair, and should be funded.
I said so been a translator forbidden to get any reward by running my own FFS.
