Free Online Human Translation Service

Lets say Enough of machine-based online translation services such as Babelfish or Google Translate? Ackuna is a crowdsourced translation project, connecting individuals around the world with human translators who can give you just the right phrasing. The free-to-use site is a side project of Translation Services USA. “We’re building a community of translators and people who need translations, where people can get together to break down the language barrier” Nick Smith, an Ackuna web producer, told Mashable. “There will always be a place for professional translation services for big books and business communications, but this is more for causal translations and stuff that doesn’t need to meet a deadline.” Smith says Ackuna is perfect for someone who is traveling or preparing for a trip. There’s a peer review process, to ensure that translation and grammar are correct. You can also vote on the accuracy of a translation and even earn badges for participation.
