Sometimes, you find a complex piece of text in a language you don't speak - or do speak, but not well enough for poetry, or metered prose, or an archaic / high-brow dialect etc - or perhaps the opposite - some non-standardized vernacular transliterated onto the web, or even text with many typos. In these cases, machine translation (e.g. Google, Yandex) don't work well, or not at all, and you need to find someone who can read and write that language at a relatively high level, probably also with some literary, rhetorical or poetic skill, to do the translation for you.
I was thinking perhaps a site for requesting and offering such translations could be a fit for the SX network. But - I've never posted anything on Area51, so I'm not sure how to proceed. I mean, I know the official conditions, but I don't meet them. And while I'd participate on such a site, I don't think I want to be central in managing it. Certainly not on my own, anyway.
Thoughts/suggestions/ideas would be welcome.
