Is it worthwhile translating my web pages for submission to foreign search engines? I desperately need more traffic for my dating site, and am now considering submitting foreign keywords.

What do you all think?

If you're going to get a decent human translation and there's a market in that language and you expect the added revenue to exceed the translation/development costs, go for it.

If you're going to use a free machine language translation, don't bother. You'll just end up embarassing yourself and hurting your future chances if you ever decide to do it the right way in the future.
