Subtitling Movies?

Here would be a major revenue stream for Duolingo! Producers, or companies such as netflix could hire duolingo to create subtitles for their movies.

Not sure if this had been mentioned already, but what if there was a section on here where say, popular english movies were split into 10-20 long clips of speech and have the users translate it. Or Vice-Versa, translate foreign films into English.

In my opinion is an excellent idea. Given the diffusion of video in Internet (actually videos spread more quickly than book ...) it could be a "killer application" for Duo .... It has been discussed before: http://duolingo.com/#/comment/72589


Would be awesome for youtube too, which is rather lacking in subtitles.
