Google Launches Quality Assurance App Crowdsource

The app will improve Google's translations

Google has released a new app called Crowdsource allowing users to contribute to the quality of Google services such as maps or translation. However, unlike Amazon's similar Mechanical Turk app, users will not get any form of reward or payment for completing tasks. The app will ask users to enter the languages they are fluent in, before allowing them to take part in the translation sections, ensuring that all tasks are completed by high-quality human translation. Described as a 'project pilot', Google launched the app with no announcement and said that it was “thinking through incentives” at the moment, but insisted that users would contribute knowing they had “made the internet a better place”.
