I really think this is the answer which deserved the +50 bounty the most. Thanks again for your great effort!

Thanks for this answer! Although it was probably the most simple one, it was obviously the most helpful one.

comment Disabled submit button on form vs allow submit then show errors?
Thanks, you guys are right: I forgot the highlighting of the box with wrong data which is very important.

Sorry, I'm not sure if I got it right. But the Facebook system is basically just suggesting translations and rating other user's suggestions, isn't it?

Maybe you're right. But I'm rather sceptical :-D So maybe I'll try to develop a solution which doesn't require two users to be playing the game simultaneously.

You're right, creating a random box with less emphasis should do the job. I think this could also be something I will use ... Thanks!

I like the second paragraph, this is something one should really do :) Thanks!

Wow, thanks for this effort! I agree that one should be able to rate every single translation. But couldn't one combine this by just letting the users choosing "the best translation"? So you already know which one he rates higher than other ones. Showing random translations along with the wanted translations might do harm to the user experience as this is not what the user wants to see. What does "military pattern" mean?

I think "aging" is not really necessary. As there are probably not that many users contributing, you need every input you can have. And all suggestions need to be double-checked later, anyway.

This is exactly what I was thinking: Users can only contribute if they are just double-checking what they think is the right translation. But separating the functions "search" and "contribute" is very difficult: Who will enter the contribute area to help? Why should someone do this? There's no reward, no gain, no profit. So only a few people will do this. But the game is a great idea. Unfortunately, one can only have this game if there are a lot of users yet.

So the thing we learn from Google is: One should enable users to vote on the single translations (which is the best?) and the user should be able to type in a new suggestion. Right? And the rating/voting must definitely be for every single translation so that the user knows what he is rating.

I would choose the Google method. The less data requested from the user the greater his willingness to contribute from time to time. Right?

I wouldn't say searching users are no potential contributors in general. I would say, most of them won't contribute but a few of them will do. So one has to make contributing as easy as possible. So the best thing is probably to do just voting which doesn't require that much participation by the users, right? And saying that I should use "support aging", do you refer to functions becoming enabled after some time or after some actions?

Oh yes, now I've understood your question :) My "readers" and "editors" or searchers and contributors are probably the same group. The case of users who are only there to contribute ("writers") appears less likely. The potential "writers" are (in most cases) in the big group of passive "readers".

I can't define the "group of searchers" more precisely, sorry :( The dictionary offers help to anybody who isn't really sure about the meaning of a word. So there might be absolute beginners who don't have any knowledge to contribute with - but their might also be experienced speakers who just wanted to make sure again. So we have 50% possible contributors maybe ;)
