Earning points for English to Spanish translation

One should be able to earn Spanish points for translating from English to Spanish. Quite frankly, there is no better sign of linguistic demand that translating from the language you know to the know you wish to learn. It is in fact the ultimate challenge.

Thus, although I welcome translating from Spanish to English, I invite Duolingo to formalize the earning of points with bidirectional translation.

All the best,

I agree, but if you want to, you could into the learn English through Spanish (go to your settings), and then start translating English articles into Spanish, although you will be earning points for English, and not Spanish.
