    Ok lets say if i copy a review from a tech blog from my own country (Holland) and paste it into Google translate and edit it so it's readable and doesn't look like shit. Will Google see this as unique content or not?

    Why I didn´t think this in the first place? My first language is Spanish I will try this method. I think that if you just simply do a Google translate, it won´t work. But if you are rewriting it, in your own language it has to work right? How can google now this? Of course try to add some of your own content.

    I always translate articles from English to my native language and viceversa and always works. No problem, google doesn't traslate an article in every language on the Earth to see if it's unique...

    On webmaster blog, there was an article that said: "translated content does not count as duplicate content". That answers to your question

    Yes it works and also Search Engines don't care about theoretically duped content (which in your case will be). If some English content is not found anywhere else in English then it is not duplicated content.

    They have no interest in keeping stuff unavailable just because it is already available in some other language. But if it is going to earn you pennies it is a waste of time I think because it takes ages to correct auto translations.

    Why don't you just check your content with copyscape ?

    You're only one click away from knowing if your content is considered as unique or not :)

    Though you'd better edit it a lot to make it readable if you also want it to be quality content, because translator output always sounds like s*** ;)

    So couldn't theoretically you translate your article into lets say 10 different languages? and still get the bang for your buck?

    Actually lots of people do it already, there are a few worpress plugins that automate the process (e.g. you post to your blog in one language, and it automatically translate them in several other languages and make your blog available in all of them. See WP-translate for example :) )

    Hubpage knows that I translated an article.... Google should know better than that... It still works for now anyways... I got all translated pages indexed... but they do not rank so well compared to my own hand written articles :)
