What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

Google translate is not good, and there's no forum or Q&A website dedicate for professional translation. So is it possible to create a section for that. Where users can post words or small paragraphs, NOT TEXTS that they want to translate?

Because if I want to translate a text, I could use Google translate, and if I want a professional translation, I have to hire someone.

Check out Area 51. You can make proposals for new SE sites there and once you have enough people committed to your new proposal the site will be activated automagically :) There is a badge involved in that process too! –  Lix Mar 8 '12 at 10:08
    
A section where exactly? On every stack exchange site? A new stack exchange site? –  Oded Mar 8 '12 at 10:09
    
@Oded a section on stackexchange like ubuntu serverfault SO unix english section... –  Eli Mar 8 '12 at 10:11
    
That would be a new stack exchange site. And as @Lix commented, you can make a proposal for one on Area 51. –  Oded Mar 8 '12 at 10:11
    
@Oded yep a new site, i just called it sections because most of the sites here are sub domains, and i am used to call a sub domain, a section –  Eli Mar 8 '12 at 10:13

I don't think you understood what we're trying to tell you. You might want to read the FAQ. –  Time Traveling Bobby Mar 8 '12 at 10:29
    
@Bobby you guys told me to post it on area51 and i did that, what else should i do? –  Eli Mar 8 '12 at 10:38
    
@Bobby - I think the OP wants to be able to translate text within the existing Stack Exchange sites, rather than creating a new site dedicated to translation. –  ChrisF Mar 8 '12 at 10:38
    
@Chris read the OP comments - he clearly wants a new site. –  Shadow Wizard Mar 8 '12 at 10:48
    
@Eli you posted a discussion while people here advised you to propose new site - see my answer, there is already existing proposal. –  Shadow Wizard Mar 8 '12 at 10:49
    
@ShaDowWizArd - Ah - my mistake,. –  ChrisF Mar 8 '12 at 10:52

Based on your comments, what you are after is new StackExchange site focused on professional translation - fair enough.

There is already pending proposal for languages site which says:

Proposed Q&A site for anyone learning a new language or wanting to have a quick translation of a sentence/idea. This site is focused on people looking for resources to learn new languages, translating phrases or questions, as well as grammar related questions.

Sounds very much like what you want, so feel free to commit:

And wait patiently until enough users commit as well - you will get email in such case.

If you really insist on having a site only for translation, you can always propose your own site but I won't advice it.
