    Hi!

    I'm planning to create a website on the vegan/vegetarian niche. The thing is that I know nothing on this niche, but I can translate the content from English to my mother language with ease. From what I've seen on Adwords, there are around 5700 monthly researches for the keywords I'm going with, which is ok... I think.

    The thing is that I'm sure I'll get more traffic if I post pictures. Is it ok if I take screenshots of Youtube videos with the content I want to translate? Am I going to get in trouble with Adsense for copyright reasons? Should I modify the color of the background or something like that to be safe?

    Thanks for your help. It's the first time I'm even thinking of actually doing it. I read a lot about it and I think it's time to practice :)

    Why not just embed the videos in to your posts/articles and add relevenat images? Also, I'm not too sure what relevance there is to you starting a website in the vegan/vegetarian niche to you translating the content to your mothers language.

    no need to do it manually, use this free plugin from wordpress.org - https://wordpress.org/plugins/video-thumbnails/ this will do it for you automatically, just embed a youtube video and this plugin will get a thumbnail for you. I use this all the time on all my sites

    It wasn't relevant, you're right. I just said that to point out the fact that the niche is not over saturated in my country. That's all.
    To answer your question, I thought that it could have a negative effect on the traffic if people realized by watching the videos that the content I write is nothing more than a translation of what somebody else wrote in a different language.

    what i do is add the video and write a original article to go with it, or as near to it as i can get without copying it. Then you are offering a legit service by giving them the option to watch a video or read or both in fact. You will be offering a valuable service

    Sorry, that's not exactly what I wanted. I wasn't really clear in my first post. You see, I'm planning to post recipes and, since I don't know how to cook the meals I'll write about, I was thinking of taking screenshots of the meals shown in videos that I would translate to have the content I need on my site. I'd do that to be sure that the recipes exactly match the pictures I post.

    I'm sorry if this wasn't clear. My bad.

    I was going to suggest what http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/834360-blogzandstuff.html mentioned but he beat me to it, write original/unique content and embed the videos in to the post(s), I've some good ranking results from posts with videos.

    Great, thanks for your feedback! That's what I'm going to do!

    The fault was mine, I should have been more accurate from the beginning. ;)

    Like some people mentioned, if I were you, I would watch the video, try to write an original article about it which gives your opinion on it, and post the video with it. If you want to go down the other road, I don't think they would detect a screenshot of a video and give you trouble about copyright.
