In a software and app world without many borders developers these days are missing opportunities for additional income and exposure by not being able to easily get their apps into other languages.
I have witnessed Windows Phone devs help each other with translations via Twitter and that seems to work pretty well but what if you need a quicker response or maybe a language that is not readily available from one of your Twitter followers?
Well this is where the Ackuna Translation Service can come in to assist.
The service offers developers access to a crowd-sourced translation platform and the translations are real human beings – not a computer generated translation.
While your app is being translated by others you can of course dive in and help with your native language to help the entire community out.
You can read more about the service on their FAQ page which will answer question such as the file formats that are accepted and how you can earn badges as you help other devs with their translations.
