Translating texts from English

Hello all! I'm just curious if the only way yo translate a text from English into a different language is by switching into English mode. Can I not get Spanish points for translating an English document into Spanish? I really like the idea of translating some of the 3+ million Wikipedia pages in English that the Spanish wiki doesn't have. Is this possible to do? Thanks a bunch!

Currently you can only translate from the language you learn to the language you know. So, if you learn Spanish through English, you can only translate from Spanish into English. If you want to translate from English into Spanish, you have to sign up for learning English through Spanish and you'll get points for English for these translations. Such is the current system.
