Tokyo-based start-up Anydoor started a translation service using Twitter on Tuesday. It’s named 140 Trans. When you post a tweet having attributes of an original language and a target language of your translation request, the service’s participating translators will give you back a translation result on Twitter.
The service can handle 140 character long messages, which is the maximum limit of every tweet defined by Twitter, and now you may post up to three translation requests in a day and choose “translation direction” from/to a variety of 47 languages as of this writing. You can use the service for free, but you may give away reward points to the translator for appreciating his/her work, and he/she will be able to convert the points earned into cash via PayPal.
