Kontrib is a digg clone in multiple languages. Whenever a story is posted to Kontrib, it automatically translates it into many supported languages.
In order to submit a story, users have to register after which an article could be submitted. Once an article is submit Kontrib translates it immediately into Arabic, English, French and Spanish. Support for more languages is upcoming. Kontrib does not only translate the article summary but also translates the actual article by crawling it via the link provided. The comments gets similar treatment.
This is really a good service as most of the times specially in political scenarios we are left with just english version of the story, just because the Arabic or Spanish version is indigestible. Kontrib will surely change this and i personally think that it will gain traction, all it needs is some event or a viral story posted to its site. I must confess that this is the first Digg clone that I liked.
Kontrib is powered by Language Weaver and is led by Felix Lung. The company is based in Marina del Rey, California.
