    Hey guys,

    I want to know whether google notices if a text is auto translated or whether it checks if the grammer is correct?
    The text is an unique english text, that isnt indexed by google yet...

    The thing is, I used to be like you. I used to translate content, but just could not be arsed to make it decent. I just used to throw it up, which has little value. If you took your time to sort the translated article out, it would be of far more value.

    Google looks at grammar, punctuation and word placement. On english, german, spanish, french their algo is almost AI so if your language is one of those, you should be really really careful about the quality of your articles.

    If you auto-translate on your site, google will not be happy (unless, of course, you use google translate). Check out their guidelines:
    You must edit grammar to avoid the site quality going way down. There are some good wordpress plugins that allow manual translation edits, if you use wordpress.

    Is it safe if I translate article using the Google Translator? They still can detect broken grammar even if I'm using their service?

    I think google translator could be safe because it's so shit it can't actually translate the original content properly and it's way different from the original..

    They can detect broken grammar if your articles have broken grammar, no matter what you use to auto-translate it. My advice is to get high quality human written articles. It will take longer, cost more but in the long run you'll profit tenfold.

    If it's a crash and burn site, go for the autotranslation.

    You can get someone to translate for you at a reasonable price and transform it to a decent article. Always maintain the quality of your content because people will question your competence. Don't trust the Google translate because they don't really deliver accurate results.
