Duolingo, a new website from Luis Von Ahn, is aimed at translating the web by creating more foreign-language speakers, getting them to read pages in their original tongues instead of waiting for translations – or relying on shoddy ones. Finally, you will be able to read all that French “Twilight” fan fiction in its unadulterated beauty.
“Duolingo leverages the brain power of millions of people who are currently learning a new language to help translate the web,” Von Ahn told WebProNews, which says that a beta version of the site launched late last year attracted some 125,000 users who have translated some 75 million sentences total.
