Crowdsourced English summaries as a way to help people translate web pages.

Duolingo recommends that you start translating at a sentence of appropriate difficulty. This would be easier to do if there were a short English summary of the web page.

Such a summary could be crowdsourced using Duolingo, perhaps as a way to test comprehension of the web page in general.

And people could vote on how good the summary is and you could get credits for it.

I always go to the beginning of the document, in order to have some consistency in my understanding and rendering of the material. I also enjoy the translation more this way.

Even so, I think the availability of a cluster of sentences translated by a high rating individual translator is a great idea.


... although it's not actually the idea you suggest.
