Words learned

How does one increase the number of "words learned" - I have reached your highest skill level in Spanish plus earned an additional 10000 skill points and have been stuck at 1700 - Does this mean that I have learned no new words in 10000 additional skill points (through translations) after reaching the highest level or that your algorithms only recognize 1700 points?

I don't think 'words learned' includes those from the translations of web pages, just those from the actual exercises.

After mastering all the topics, it's the only place you can learn "new" words.

I would say 11 or 12 is the highest level attainable without translating a document. Just to make sure, I decided to confirm this hypothesis and went on to do the placement test and redeeming tests in Spanish to obtained the highest level possible. I graduated or finished - in a couple of hours- the tree for this language (practically my other mother tongue) losing five or six hearts just because of typos and never reached level 12 (you surely guess that my word counting is comparatively low). So I would say a realistic target should be level 12 to 13.
