Win a free Android One handset in India during Google's second Translatathon

Win a free Android One handset in India during Google's second Translatathon
If you are fluent in Bengali, Telugu, and Tamil, Google needs your help. The company is looking for you to translate into English certain words and phrases in those languages during its second Translatathon, which ends on December 30th. Google will reward the 50 most active participants by giving them a free Android One handset. According to Google, there are 22 different languages employed in India; the three that we mentioned above are not seen on the internet as much as others. Google's previous Transatathon drew 20,000 helpers who contributed over 1 million new translations for Hindi.

If you're an Indian citizen, click on g.co/translatathon to register. Once that is accomplished, you will be able to access the Translate Community Tool. Once logged in, using the same Gmail address you registered with, click on "Translate" or "Validate" to start contributing.

Google is calling this a contest, and says to for entries to count they must be received by December 30th and submitted in Devanagari script. At the end of the contest period, Google will tally up the score and the top 50 scores above 20 will receive the free phone. Winners will be announced on January 30th.  সৌভাগ্য (Good Luck).

Beggars these google people are. Check the price for corporate translation in India and the android 1 cellphone price. If I translate 4/5 pages for a company, I can easily buy an android one phone. And much of that translation is just a routine, although boring, work. The translation help that google is asking for, on the contrary, is much more challenging and difficult.

It's truely a waste of time. When last year the prizes were 101 , I did about 3600 translations. But couldn't win. I contacted a person who won last year. He told that he did more than 6000 translations. This year there are only 50 prizes and this program has become more popular. So , I think you will have to do about minimum 10000 translations to win. Which will take your previous hours. There are many sites where you can get paid much more for the same time and that too in cheque.
