I think that gaining levels should be rewarded with opportunity to Contribute more, and doing so unlocks a new type of badge and task. Then doing THAT allows us to do more from outside the app, like reporting an incorrect translation or extraneous data or something. And leveling this type of "extra credit" earns the opportunity to correct these finds and/or validate a correction. (If no one corrects that person's submission, they should have a chance to offer one, then it goes to someone else for validation.) And if a public correction is made, a small compensation is paid to the contributors for their parts.
I use Google services everyday. And while Google's business model runs on advertising. They still need to support alot of users. Even though there are no rewards there have been countless times I translate something and it says it was powered by Crowdsource. It makes Google's AI better everyday
Would be great if I could actually do something to help! It is so frustrating to have the only second language that I know, not on the list, isiXhosa! I can provide validations and translations on the Translate community website, but not on this app! Please add isiXhosa to your language list!
Not enough incentive to use long term, but Application works well. I would give 5-stars if there were any sort of rewards.

Google is not a non profit organization. And we do all these translation for fun. Nothing comes free in this world. I would not prefer to do this for free. If not something great then at some level if something like music or video subscription.
We've got some shiny badges for you. And a fun new type of task.
