    Hello - why do you want an Irish translator? There are (by my guesstimation) about 5 crypto enthusiasts in the whole country who might appreciate it. Ireland doesn't have much of an Irish speaking population, English is our native tongue - only 2% of us speak Irish.

    I've just done the maths - if 2% of the country speaks Irish and only 2% of the nation holds any crypto and there's fair representation of crypto owners within the Irish-speaking community (hahahahahahahahaaaa - unlikely), you're looking for a translator to please 19 people. Max.

    I think the more likely number is zero :p

    You seem to be working from an asumption that the country has a population of 47,500. Níl Béarlóirí go maith le huimhreacha is cosúil.

    Likely drunk at the time, good catch. It's a miniscule amount of people that can be reduced even further for a random shítcoin anyway. Putting aside the fact that you like Irish, would you really recommend some random coin with an already tiny audience go to the trouble of translating for 1900 people who might like Bitcoin but have no idea about the random shítcoin?
    There's probably a bounty to be earned if you're eager to earn the shítcoin.

    No market. Any one in this country who speaks Irish as a first language can speak English aswell.

    When it's said that '2% speak Gaelic' -one needs to consider what this means. 2% would equate to about 95,000 people. But there's nothing like that number who have a command of the language such as would enable them to discourse fluently and spontaneously about the full gamut of subjects that comprise our world today -from Architecture to Zoology.
    Most people who claim to 'speak Gaelic' have only a restricted vocabulary , lousy phonetics and next to no idiomatic range . All they're doing is mentally translating English into a paltry made up form of Gaelic. The resultant mish-mash makes for painful listening and amounts to little more than Garblish. The standard of the language used in the so-called Gaeltacht areas ( now hugely shrunken) is miserable
    The whole 'Gaelic Revival' project is utterly misconceived and futile. The waste and frustration occasioned by forcing Gaelic into the education system( as mentioned above) is scandalous to contemplate.

    No, I can't say I can much point in an Irish translation of some random Bitcoin wanabe, nor is there much point to the English version of most of them.
