I have a thousand strings and want them translated to Hindi.
I don´t want to pay money and I don't speak Hindi.

I am looking for a "translation exchange" platform:

  • I translate unrelated strings into languages I know,
  • in exchange, unrelated people translate my strings to Hindi.

I don't know exactly how this would work, but maybe I could get "credits" for performing translations that people want, and then place these credits on my strings. Or something similar. Maybe with the possibility to flag answers that seems bad, for fluent experienced users to check and act appropriately, a bit like moderation and tag-related privileges here on StackExchange.

Important: There must be a reward system that makes people translate my string after I have translated strings for others. Traditional translation crowdsourcing platforms like Crowdin/Transifex/TranslateWiki/Google Translator Toolkit are NOT valid answers.

  • Possible solution is lang-8.com, but I´m not 100 per cent sure if you can translate that amount of strings there in a reasonable amount of time. – Tobias H. Jun 18 '14 at 9:35
  • @Tobiask: lang-8 is for getting corrections, not for getting translations, right? – Nicolas Raoul Jun 19 '14 at 2:58
  • Perhaps translatewiki.net is what you are looking for. – liftarn Jun 19 '14 at 6:28
  • @SVilcans: No it is not. Please read the "Important" paragraph above. – Nicolas Raoul Jun 19 '14 at 6:52
  • @NicolasRaoul Ok, you could use Google Translator Toolkit and handle the rewards manually. – liftarn Jun 19 '14 at 6:56
