myGengo | English | Japanese
Unique web-service similar to a "mechanical turk" for translation. Offers human translation optimized for large volumes of texts, at significantly lower prices than traditional services. Company is a start-up with Stanford alumni founders. Users upload or paste texts into a form, select a quality level for an instant price quote, and receive completed translations within a few hours through the website. myGengo translators are an outsourced network of pre-tested native-speaker translators, including Japanese and English. myGengo is *not* crowd-sourcing translators, but rather has created an efficient platform for casual users to receive quality translations amidst a growing but poor-quality "machine translation" environment.
