My business is expanding into Europe I have a main website which I wish to use for my .FR and .DE Domains. I want the european sites to have the same design as my main brand which is highly ranked on Google. What I would like to know is, if I use the same design but with translated text would Google class this as a duplicate site? hence running the risk of 1 getting removed from the serps.
Am I right to presume Google would treat this as an individual site?
I would also like to know what I need to do in webmaster tools to ensure my main site is not affected on the serps in any way.
I really would appreciate your help on this.
