Ackuna’s Latest Translation Contest is a Scary Good Time!

Ackuna (, the crowdsource translation platform that can be considered the social gathering mecca of app developers and translators, will be launching their 6th and most spook-tacular contest for the Halloween season!

For those that are unfamiliar with Ackuna, they provide developers with the opportunity to upload their app files and receive free crowdsourced translations from Ackuna’s 10,000-strong bilingual translator community members who use Ackuna on a regular basis. By using Ackuna, developers can offer more accurate multilingual versions of their apps in order to bridge the language gap online, without having to resort to inaccurate machine translations.

You’re probably thinking, “That’s great and all, but what do translators get from using Ackuna?”

Ackuna also prides itself in providing a fantastic social network for translators. Translators can follow and message other users, network with developers for potential paid projects, earn points and badges by translating, and promote themselves and their own websites/LinkedIn pages on their profiles, all while practicing their craft on fun, real-world applications of their choosing.

Ackuna also hosts regular contests, where winners receive translation software prize packages worth hundreds of dollars. Which brings me to the purpose of this posting…

Ackuna’s latest contest, the ‘You Scared the App Out of Me!‘ Translation Contest begins on September 21st for translators and is being sponsored by Memsource, who is offering some terrific prizes for the winning translators.  So check out Memsource’s website if you are unfamiliar with their products, and head on over to Ackuna’s contest page to see what you could win!

For Ackuna’s latest contest, they are choosing 10 apps to use, so translators of all different language backgrounds can have an equal opportunity to earn the most points.

So if you are in the spirit to take part in a fun translation contest this month, don’t forget to sign-up before the 21st. Ackuna is completely free and open to everyone, but you must create an account to participate.
