Whoa there..... if I put a Google translation button on my pages I'm providing the viewer with a way to see a crappy translation.
If I create multi-language pages as part of my site I'm providing the viewer with a way to see a crappy translation.
Same outcome... the common denominator is the tool that outputs the crappy translation.
One big difference: I believe the crappy translations in Option #1 won't be indexed, thereby avoiding a potential wrist-slapping by Google. Of course, you loose potential foreign-language searches, too.
