I propose to create a bidirectional French-Arpitan translator. Arpitan (often called Franco-Provençal) is an endangered and heavily under-resourced Gallo-Romance language spoken in parts of France, Switzerland and Italy. This would be the first translator for it. A big issue is the lack of a language standard that has clear majority support. I choose the ORB standard because it is one of the three most widely used and is the only one that attempts to be supra-dialectical.
