I think it would be fantastic if there could be a formal coding addition to the site to manifest this user skill, something along the lines of a translator button that automates the process. Users could register as translators in specific language groups, then when someone needs something translated they can hit the button, select the language and a u2u request could be delivered to the respective translators.
