    Hi

    I wonder how is the translation technique best used ..... I found two german articles,translated them and just edited to make the grammar correct. I submitted two of them to test out whether they will work or not and guess what !!!????

    $2.85 for an article on 'how to choose a tennis racket'
    $3 for an article on ' how to choose a laptop' lol :D

    SO I will rinse and repeat The articles i did were as simple as anything and all I did was edit the grammar.

    ANybody have better or faster techniques ?
    Thanks in advance
    Regards

    Yeah I do this (hoped nobody found out and spilled the beans lol)... it works well... It's quite an easy thing to do... I don't see why you'd need a software to get it done.

    Nice idea..thanks. I'm going to try this. Do you translate them from German in to a few languages prior to finishing in English?

    I tried this a few times and i found that Dutch to English translation comes out more coherent than German translation. Also Spanish to English seems to do alright for the most part.

    Spanish articles
    Code:
    www.yugler.com
    www.buscadordearticulos.com
    
    Be sure to check with copyscape though before you submit.

    Do you just find a foreign language article directory translate the articles using google translate ,edit it and then submit it to AC?

    Yeah pretty much, most of the time though its going to require a lot of editing depending on which language you choose to translate it from. For instance if you found a Korean article then translated into English most of the time its going to come out looking like garbage.

    yea, this method seems very difficult, i have not herd of any one being very successful with it yet. It usually mixes it up to being unreadable

    It takes a while to edit though, the grammar kinda sucks.

    I found it actually easier to rewrite myself. A lot of articles are already translated and then posted on blogs (fellow BHers :) ) plus the grammar sucks. By the time I find one which is CS passed and then edit the grammar I could've rewritten two.

    Nick Flame included this method (free content, German-English) in a post awhile back (over a yr. I think). I've tried it. It works. And yes, it will pass copyscape.
