Hey all!

I recently found out that there is a Google Translate Community site where people who speak more than 1 language fluently can improve the translation quality. We can write new translations or rate existing ones.

Also, you earn badges for completing translations and level up.

What do you guys think about this? Did you know about the site and have you tried it?

So the richest company in the world asks people without experience/translation knowledge to do something for free with badges and levels as their only rewards, instead of paying professional translators. I can't say I'm thrilled. Translation needs more skills than speaking fluently two languages.

Oh wow. I did not know that. I always thought Goggle Translator could use help with it's Filipino translations -- they are often wrong. And the Cebuano translations are really bad.
