    Home Page:
    Don't forget that you can download it in all languages. If you badly need content, you could, for example, download a German version and use google translator to translate it to English. The articles will be 100% unique (unlike when you take an english article and translate it to other language and then to english again)

    Edit: only after 5 minutes I realized how awesome my idea is!
    Edit 2: I also remembered that I shared the same link as seo20 a while ago (I was very drunk at the time, so didn't remember this before)

    I was just reading this ...

    what about auto translation ....

    dump the (lets say) German version of thier DB into mysql and pull the articals out and run them through a translator and publish on your site .... auto content generation !!

    pretty easy actually !
