We introduce a new approach to the problem of obtaining
cost-effective, reasonable quality translation, by exploiting
simple and inexpensive human computations by monolingual
speakers. The key insight behind the process is that it is
possible to to spot likely translation errors with only monolingual
knowledge of the target language, and it is possible to
generate new ways to say the same thing (i.e. paraphrases)
with only monolingual knowledge of the source language.
Initial evaluation demonstrates substantial improvements in
