google translate is not good, and there's no forum or Q&A website dedicate for professional translation. So is it possible to create a section for that. Where users can post words or small paragraphs, NOT TEXTS that they want to translate?

Because if i want to translate a text, i could use google translate, and if i want a professional translation, i have to hire someone.


That's not really what we do. http://stackexchange.com/about. We're not a professional translations service, and questions asked will be too localized.

too localized

This question is unlikely to ever help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

Questions are generally expected to contribute to a larger compilation of knowledge that will help the hundreds (or possibly thousands) of people searching for that information on the Internet. Personal translations are more about providing one-on-one personalized help.

This does sound like a useful service, but its not what we set out to do with this software or our audience, so this particular idea is probably best served on another platform.

  • how about creating a site for robotics or computer engineering or telecom or electrical engineering... do you think that any of those deserve to have a website or not sir? i think that robotics and computer engineering are good topics – Lynob Mar 8 '12 at 23:21
  • I don't understand your question. How is the creation of those sites related to the issue of creating a Language Interpretation site? – Robert Cartaino Mar 8 '12 at 23:23
  • unrelated...but just asking to see if it's a good idea to open new questions on area51 ... new proposal but if you believe that those topics will fail to get enough attention then i won't open questions about these stuff – Lynob Mar 9 '12 at 0:02
  • @Eli We have an Electrical Engineering site; CP would likely be too close to justify another site. Robotics proposal has been put "on hold" in support of the new CS site. I don't really have any insight into what support a telecomm proposal might receive receive. – Robert Cartaino Mar 9 '12 at 1:09
