Contribute to Google Translate in India, win an Android One handset

Google has kicked off its second Translatathon in India, enlisting volunteers to contribute to the Google Translate community. The search giant is looking for those fluent in Bengali, Telugu, and Tamil to help validate words and phrases from their languages into English. The 50 most active volunteers will win an Android One phone.

Says Google:

There are 22 official languages in India. And while Google Translate can help you with nine of them at the moment, languages that are under-represented on the Internet like Bengali, Telugu, and Tamil could use a little help. This is where people who are passionate about their native languages like you can use the Translate Community tool to make a big difference.

The first Translatathon saw 20,000 volunteers contributing over one million new translations for Hindi. This year's installment will go on until December 30. Interested in contributing? Head to the links below to register and get started with the Translate community in India.
