    Has anyone tried a website with multi languages? Currently trying to make a authority website with 35 posts with an average of 380 words each post (which is decent for the type of niches I'm using) all unique and hand written, also chose the website as english in webmaster tools, however I found quite some nice keywords that have literally 0 competition and get some traffic but they are in my language so I wanted to ask if anyone ever had experience with websites that are mainly english and then have a few posts in another language.

    Admittedly this might not answer your question, but I have success just translating my entire websites. It appears the duplicate content penalty doesn't work across languages :)

    I think that making a separate part of the site would be better since it looks confusing to have a blog with mixed language posts in the same section.

    As there is two different languages you are using amoung those 35 posts, there won't be any risk of duplication.i guess,you can do it without breaking the seo.

    if your website has many languages you will need to optimize your site to ensure each language ranks in its respective country.

    Op talking translated version of same site of mixing English and non-English? Mixing is bad typically, but different versions is fine if done right.
