On the subject of paid translation, I could imagine this being included in the scope of work for a "Wiki Community Foundation" or "Wiki Content Foundation" that would do work that WMF doesn't do and/or shouldn't do. I have a number of activities in mind for this kind of organization. Unfortunately, I do not know how to fund it. I think that this organization should get most of its funding from non-WMF sources, and WMF has such strong fundraising capabilities that I think that competing with WMF for funding from readers and grant-making organizations would be very difficult. If WMF would like to have conversations about how the community could raise funds directly from readers and non-WMF foundations, I for one would be very interested in having that conversation.
