    I've built a niche site in a foreign language and about to start doing some bookmaking. Most of the good bookmaking sites are in English language but what if I want to bookmark my new site? Some of the BM sites don't accept Cyrillic so is it OK to write the title and description in English? Is Google likely to penalize my site for this?

    You could do a few things to off set this. If it's wordpress there are few plugins that offer page translation.

    You could submit the web page in English translation. Further more if you want to bypass automatic checking on languages you can change the meta tag to English (even tho it's not)

    Make sure that some of those sites do not offer regional language settings and localization. Just like Google many large websites
    have GEO specific pages or domains for a particular country or region and that is what you need to target.
