Translation as a venue for outreach?

There are various ways into the Wikimedia movement. Most of us start by writing or adding to articles to Wikipeda, of course. Others proofread at Wikisource. Some were drawn into Wikivoyage. Others upload photographs to Commons and have never done much else on our wikis.

Maybe, in a small way, translation could be another way into the Wikimedia world? Not just for articles, but also people who enjoy technical translations and similar tasks.
