Pubkicks-com sites in 14 different languages

Found a couple of sites in various foreign languages and traced the content back to pubkicks(dot) com. Noticed they advertise they will publish your article in 14 different languages. Maybe something here for those developing

"All your articles are published in foreign languages. PubKicks will publish all of your articles in 14 different foreign languages".

Sample page I found on electronic cigarettes:

From what I see on that page, the translations are all done by Google translator. Basically, any of us with sites can write content in the language we know best, and then use Google to translate it into all the other languages.

Oh well, was hoping it was a system with a more human touch to correct the text.

When using a free service like this I can at least expect certified translations by Oxford philologists.

Re: Pubkicks-com sites in 14 different languages

the "funny" thing is we are moving towards a world where google translator is doing everything. no page will be left in its native language. great.

but let's not forget its appallingly useless at many pages in many languages .... where's that oxford guy when you need him
