Found this article about BuzzFeed, thought it was interesting: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304500404579129590411867328.html#!
Crowdsourced translations to send ‘listicles’ overseas.
I like this idea in theory, but in practice BuzzFeed uses too many idiomatic expressions to make translation an simple task. I have a feeling that the translations will be as funny as the articles themselves.
