Google: Automated translations could potentially be viewed as spam
Many website owners, content providers and SEO companies use translation and localization as a method to reach wider audience and increase sales.
Machine translation, such as Google Translate, is commonly used nowadays thanks to recent technological improvements and the availability of the service free of charge. Many web-site owners, businesses and even leading newspapers like La Tribune in France ( use automatic translation to translate their content. Unfortunately, the use of machine translation can be more damaging than not translating at all. Computers will need human like intelligence before being able to understand and correctly translate even simple sentences.
Not surprisingly, Google itself - the biggest machine translation provider - admits that machine translation may be viewed as spam. As written in the official Google Webmaster blog few days ago:
"We recommend that you do not allow automated translations to get indexed. Automated translations don’t always make sense and they could potentially be viewed as spam. More importantly, the point of making a multilingual website is to reach a larger audience by providing valuable content in several languages. If your users can't understand an automated translation or if it feels artificial to them, you should ask yourself whether you really want to present this kind of content to them."
