    I'm wondering if a translated article or any content would be considered duplicate by google. For example I have an English article and create a Spanish translated version of that article and post that translated article elsewhere, is that a duplicate?

    Of course not ! For example duplicate would be words = beer , beer

    And can you see duplicate in latvian and english = Alus , beer .

    Anyway duplicate content is pasted, and you should avoid that, or google willsay that its duplicate content, so go ahead and translate text.

    I have the same question. I have enough content in my hard disk for five blogs, and if I translate them to different languages, will it be considered duplicate?

    Let me put it this way: Even if Google had actual humans manually check your blog, there would be NO WAY to catch it.

    I've noticed G, deranking a lot of content run through their translator - somehow they have a way of detecting snippets. I have previously seen 1M+ pages get removed due to translation. Fortunately it didn't affect sites themselves, just the translated versions of content.

    Nothing to catch, as it is a unique, non-competiting format of the original, as it is in another language. It is seen as a ' stacked ' version of the original and is a primary business practice that everyone SHOULD do.

    I do this with every article in my business, as it not only gives you a legitimate boost, it also expance your authority of your site for being more interactive and informative to more people via more language access points.

    Win-win.

    It should be regraded as a duplicate, though in a different language but means the same.
    Remember Google is smart and not a fool.

    Exactly, counts as the same material but upgraded in quality due to more people accessing it.

    right now it is OK to use, but in future if google changes anything in their system, then only it will create some problem
