    Instead of spinning articles, which always comes out like garbage (and Ive used it all, including WordAI) couldn't one simply translate an article in another language (using Google to translate) and then correct any grammar errors until it makes sense?
    Where could I find articles in another language? Are there any Chinese or Spanish article databases or something like this where I can translate articles? Im curious since I wanna test this and run translated articles through copyscape.

    If you will use Google Translate on any other similar tool, your translated articles will look worse than spinned ones. And, if you will correct them manually, then you will end up spending even more time than if you would have translated them by yourself.
    And I am talking from my own experience, here.

    I thought so too, but the translated websites and blogs that I tested came out decent. Everything I ever spun required intensive corrections. A lot of sentences literally made no sense. I'd rather correct grammar than sentence structure or comprehensibility. Because the latter usually requires actually reading the original article to see what it was trying to say. Putting in an "is" or "are" in a few sentences as you read it over seems a lot easier than reading through spun junk and having to rewrite entire sentences.

    I tried everything including WordAi Turing which I have to say, I was not impressed with, it actually gave me the same result as spinner programs Ive used here at BHW. I would even set spinning settings to the most readable, and the articles were atrocious.

    Maybe it's the topic of articles I'm spinning but I'm beginning to think I'd get better quality out of a poor translation.

    I did that couple of times but I'm actually translating from my first language to English so it is a little easier since I understudy what was written before. But this was easier for me then spinning. My tip is use articles in language you understudy to translate to English because that make it easier to correct

    Exactly, this is very fast way to get nice unique content. I even spent some time to write a whole method about it. It sure isn't perfect quality, but its free to get you goin'.
    I have noticed that google translates some languages better than other.

    Which languages have you experimented with?

    Certain languages are easier to work with than others.

    I dont remember well, but I know russian to bulgarian was quite impressive. My guess is that both languages are slаvonic, and are very similar. What is you experiance with G translate, what language is closest to english ?

    Yeah you can do this but Google translate is not accurate enough for professional articles and you need to pay someone to translate the
    articles for you professionally. Try looking up Babylon translation services they have translators for hire.

    Translation is a good way of getting unique articles for your target languages. Your sites will rank easily, especially if you have a large volume of articles

    yes i did few years ago and worked very well, the sites have been kind of penalized now,but I think was more the way the articles were structured and too many back links with the same anchor. now they rank very well in yahoo and bing, but very bad in google.

    But I have started a new authority site, and altough rank a little in yahoo and bing, in google are no where in first 100 spots.

    May be I just keep translating and posting away,and traffic will come, the content is top notch, I will just send , social signals and see if I can get some link from wikipedia,too...

    I wonder if google caches all translations and later
    when it sees the text it thinks oh Yeh I remember that one, translated it from article that resides on other site so let's call it duplicate.

    may be, I have translated the aticles by myself,without google translator or such, but eitherway translated content is very similar,eccept mine doent have any grammar mistakes.

    I will spin an article first, and then try to translate it, lets see if work.....

    People use spinning technique by software to save time.If some body got time writing article is even not a rocket science.

    Dont use g00gle translate for that! you are just leaving an heavy and unneccessary footprint for Matt and his boys.

    I am doing this all manually because its a fast way to get high quality content for free, especially if you have Natural Dragon set up. It is mindfucking work though, so soon as Ican afford it I will hire me some good students to do that.

    I never realized that. Good top actually. I'm a paranoid dude so even if this wasn't true it's better to be safe than sorry.

    OMG you all treat GOOGLE as the big fu&%$!# FBI of the internet whose going to come at you and make your life miserable if they caught you.
    There are tons of ways of getting traffic to your sites besides Google´s search (If you are that scare). Plus if the article is original, readable, informative
    and good, It will count as the original source for Google, so who gives a rat how you wrote it.

    Internet is full of duplicate content anyways. You can find Yahoo and MSM ranking articles with exact duplicate content linking back to the source.
    You will find crappy content ranking much better than original content. You will find Experts of any profession (SEO, Social Media, Recipes, etc) talking
    the same thing over and over in different ways, but at the end is the same bla bla bla. Whether you translated from Google bot or not.

    you are right there is not only google, but talking about search engines ranking, I rank very well 1,2,3 spot in yahoo and bing and top I get 60 visitors a day (from search engines) when I use to rank also in google I get 1000 (fromsearch engines), since my bottom line is money,I prefer to rank also in google. And I dont think nobody is scaredof google, just want to understand more how it works,trying and tweeking.
