hey I have and idea for a complete 100% spam free way to increase hubpages content, insert a wikipedia style language button , so you can read an translated version of the hub, also create an aproval system for the author of the original hubs, so that he can have editorial control over the quality of the translation, and a more balanced share ratio to split say 50/50 to the original creator and the translator, as a native portuguese speaker for example I can translate hubs to what is now the 7th most spoken language in the world.
what do you think?
HubPages admin has said since they, the site management, don't have the staff and skills to administrate and check foreign language content for Google compliance and their own standards, that's why HubPages is just English for now.
Loads of web users already know how to use Google's translation tools anyway. I use them all the time to read Chinese sites. Many of my users translate my hubs into their language.
I wonder if it is considered duplicate content if you post a translation of a hub you wrote in a different language? Does Hubpages check for translations of other sites?
Reposting your own hubs, in the same hubpages account, does not trip the duplicate content filter in English.... so I see now reason why it would in a different language.
I think that its a terrible idea to have hubs in other languages anway, unless it is done on other domains. For example, Hubpages.de or hubpages.fr and hubpages.es

I am pretty new to HP, and I was doing some Hub Hopping to get a feel for what people are writing about, when I saw that many of the hubs seemed to be written by some kind of robo program, or by somebody who took...

I just ran across a site, radikewl dot com, that had copied another hubber's hub that I had a comment on. The entire hub, including comments, is translated into Spanish. No author is named. That led me to do a search...

I'm sorry if this post offends anybody, but I am really getting tired of people who basically are non English speakers showing up, throwing a hub together without expending any effort to read the forums or the learning...
