I've been promoting my 30 Seconds to Mars hub on their official message board and someone just asked permisssion to translate my article into Finnish.
Obviously if I give permission, I will ask her to include a link back to my hub (and I honestly believe she will) but I'm curious how other hubbers handle these types of requests.
If you give permission, what is the best way to do this and still drive more traffic to your hub?
Ftr, it's someone I've come to know on that message board and I honestly believe her intentions are good (and the fact that she even asked also indicates that imo).
What are your thoughts and/or opinions?
A back link to your Hub is what could be asked for as already stated and so far traffic is concerned it will not be affected as both the articles will be in different languages. But I am not sure if it will violate any Hub policy like duplicate content issue.
@Kelsey, go for it. Have them do it and throw in the backlink. It'll tap you into a fresh stream of traffic you never had access to before.
Yeah, because it's a different language, I didn't think the duplicate content would really be an issue...
That was my first thought too, although I did ask her how she plans on posting it or using the translation (a blog, to email to friends, etc.).
I say 'go for it' for no other reason than to see what happens. Also (if she's not just emailing it around), you might post a link at the end of the hub just so the Infinitely Curious here (like myself) can see it in a different language!

Someone from an online dating site wants to put one of my hubs on her website. She said she would credit me fully, but wants to publish the entire article on her site. I'd be fine with a link to my hub, but I'm a little hesitant about letting someone copy my work. Any advice? Words of wisdom?

If someone asked you to give them a random piece of advice, what would you say?

Have you or would you pose a question on Hubpages because someone asked you to?I was reading a hub the other day and thought that it was odd that someone made the comment for someone to pose a certain question so that they can write a hub about it. This not only sounds like poor etiquette, but also...

If someone asked you to wash the windows of the entire Dallas downtown. How much would you charge?

I know that this is probably a question that is asked far too frequently. However, I've never really been in a situation where I'm so confused.So, tell me your opinions on being truthful. Is it better to tell the truth when you know it would upset someone? And should you just not mention anything...
