I've actually started recently a similar project www.oka.wiki, focused on funding Wikipedia translators (which we train on using Wikipedia, and hire in countries with low cost of living).
The team now reached 10 FTE, and we have already translated a couple of hundred of articles over the last few months. If you think that our services could be helpful for EA, I'd be happy to collaborate so that we can translate pages about Effective Altruism into other languages (feel free to reach out at email@example.com).
I'm also planning to write a post here about my experience soon.
I'm actually working on a similar project www.oka.wiki, focused on funding Wikipedia translators (which we train on using Wikipedia, and hire in countries with low cost of living). We currently have ~10 FTE and already published hundreds of articles.
We initially got some pushback from the community, but so far it seems like the solutions we have implemented (around increasing transparency, more thorough quality checks) have helped.
I'd be happy to share more about the project and our experience if that's helpful. I was planning to write a post in a couple of months about it once I have gathered more data/experience with this.
