    I would like to make a script to localize every user country origin, and get the articles translated to user's language, is this possible with wordpress? is there any plugin in wordpress? Or I must open a new website with new domain, with translated articles (and translated keywords maybe)?? It could be boring... My blog is on computers niche and targetting EU users, but I want to get USA users with english posts too, is this possible? thanks a lot

    You could use GEOip you could use /en /fr for example and have two articles for those languages.

    Arguably the best translation plugin with loads of features.

    I thought about doing that for a couple of my sites a year or so ago and did not follow through as it looked too daunting for me.

    Let us know how it works out please.

    as for starting I wanted to make a new blog, where articles were translated to english (including keywords) but I see that this can be pain in the ass (also cost $$ for plugins/translate script), also it can be a mess for people who want to read the blog in another language (same blog with translated articles) and so main blogs having traffic from EU and then translated blog with USA/UK traffic may be a complete mess and not looking as a professional blog.

    So This is my new Idea that I think will work better:

    Me and my blog team will continue to write articles for the main blog (EU traffic) and each person of my blog team will make a new personal blog/youtube where we'll translate the most interesting articles/videos to get USA/UK people traffic (including keywords). This way, each person of my team will have their own professional blog page and every blog will redirect the traffic from USA/UK to main blog with EU traffic. I think this way is better and can give a better view of our blog (computer/web tutorials niche) and get people from all over the world interested in our articles, also we can get a more self-exposure for Computer companies and look as professional team with my blog Team and self made blog for each people of my team.

    I think that separating blogs and traffic is a better idea. Since it looks like there is a lot of content and info on the blog and if you combine all languages and versions, it might become a bit of a mess, or at least it will require lots of effort to maintain it neatly. Having separate blogs and accounts sounds like a good idea, with it also bringing extra backlinks and exposure.
