    Yeah translate them. You have nothing to lose everything to gain. Have a native English speaker review it though. Minor spelling errors will turn some buyers away, it looks less professional. For example? in your post you wrote?

    It needs to be "is it worth the time to translate them to Spanish"

    Just minor things like that can bug readers, and distract them from your content.

    Good luck

    BHW really teaches many people to continue to live and learn. Hence, translating articles from English to Spanish is a nice idea. How many $$$ can you earn from that online earning venture?

    I recommend using transposh if you are using wordpress. I don't know about the quality because it really is just using google translation so if you want to actually target Spanish customers then that is another project.

    But from a pure SEO point of view I have translated pages into Spanish on one of my sites and all of those pages got indexed.
