    Hi,

    I have followed some of these threads with interest, especially the language "content spinning" posts. I have written a script that uses XMLHTTP to use an online translation page to translate all my current articles from english to Spanish.

    (I did some research, Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the western world.)

    Anyhow - I know what articles are now Spanish as I have added a flag in the database after I save them, my question is do I create a new "Spanish" template and serve the articles in there, or can I just add the Spanish article to my current template and have the title say "This is the title (Spanish version)".

    Basically I am asking if Google will not like a mixed language page? Or will a mixed language page actually help SERPS?

    Any advice appreciated. Thanks.

    I would make a seperate link/page with the translated articles for each language.
    or you can make a totally new site with the translated content specifically.

    You can also use hxxp://translate.google.com/translate_t

    to translate into any language you want

    Thanks - I could not get hxxp://translate.google.com/translate_t to work with the XMLHTTP object so I had to use another site that does not do a referrer check. I think for now I will make a little spanish flag and template for these new articles.

    Another question - will adsense pick up the language and start displaying spanish ads? Or should I look through CJ for something espanol?

    Thanks.

    Yes,adsense always( or almost) show ads in the lenguaje the post is writen.That is the reason to make diferent pages to english and spansh contoent, so Adsense could adapt the ads to the languaje of your site and get a better CTr form your visitors.
