Google Crowdsource app seeks help with translation and other services from its users


Google has launched a new app dubbed as Crowdsource which lets you contribute to language translation and handwriting recognition.

With Crowdsource, Google is asking its users to contribute with translations, transcriptions and handwriting recognition. After booting the app, users are asked which languages you are fluent in, which will provide more options within the various categories. Next up, it lets you choose from micro-tasks like image transcription, handwriting recognition, translation and translation validation, as well as map translation validation.

Google Crowdsource app description on Play Store,

Each microtask takes no more than 5-10 seconds, so knock away a few the next time you find yourself with a few moments to kill – be it while waiting in line at the grocery store or on the train ride home. Everytime you use it, you know that you’ve made the internet a better place for your community.
