While i feel that it should not be considered duplicate if you translate it manually.
I am not sure about Automated Translation of content.
That is a great question. What stops somebody from looking up pages on Widgets written in Swedish and then using the google translator tool to translate them into English, and then posting them on an English language site?
I do remember that JohnMU said in one of the google webmaster forums that google frowned upon automatic translations for automating content, but the wording was a bit vague.
