I have noticed that not everyone speaks good English. I have no problem with this; as long as I can read it and make sense of it, it's all good.
However, sometimes the English is atrocious, and since this is an English-speaking site, I was wondering if there wasn't a way to arrange official (or
unofficial) "translators", people who voluntarily translate non-English posts into proper English.
There could be a Translate option on the thread, and by clicking it, you alert the volunteers to whatever post needs translating. They would then
translate the post, exactly as it is written (except for necessary grammatical/spelling changes, to smooth the process over) and repost it as English.
Optionally, it could be reviewed by staff for accuracy and readability before actually appearing to the public.
They could be moderators, they could be average users deciding to help out with the site...but I thought it would be a good idea.
Yes? No? Maybe? What's your vote?
