    Hi everyone,

    I know that duplicate content is bad for SEO, but how about trasncribing content from youtube videos or translating from another language?

    Thanks all in advance for the tips.

    It should be ok but you have to read it and correct all the errors and make it reader friendly, quality content

    Copying in another language is not bad.

    If the video content and the change to the article, the article is still unique and rare people use.

    By using words from video you should create error free and useful content that will be good to use this content in other language.

    Seriously, who told you copying content is bad.have you ever heard of syndicated content.all news portals has same content for same news but they are still in market.even press release sites has 100% similiar contents,as press release are one time written and submitted to multiple sources

    Transcribing should be OK. Its actually a good move and might make the info more accessible online. (most people have to PAY someone to do this)

    Transcribing from youtube sounds like a great idea. Try throwing Dragon NaturallySpeaking into the mix to speed up the process.
