So what do we help translating?
Duolingo translates the web, right? Well, are there any websites in particular we're translating into different languages?
You can see each article on its original website by clicking on the "View original document" link in the right sidebar, below "Document stats".
I would like to know what's actually being done with the translations, though. Some of them don't seem to have any lasting value that would require them to be translated into English, since there's a fair bit of outdated celebrity gossip and sports news and the like.
Given the generally poor quality of the translations, maybe Duolingo is just using this initial round of data to work out how to improve their crowdsourced translations.
