Looking For Translators for the Blogger's Guide to SEO

Mar 11th

Some readers who came across The Blogger's Guide to SEO asked me if it was ok to translate it. It is Creative Commons licensed, so please feel free to. Please comment on this post referencing the language you are going to translate to. I will link to translations from the official guide, which has many thousands of inbound links and hundreds of daily pageviews, so it should send some traffic to your site.

I am about to lunch a new site, if you like to, I could make "the Blogger's Guide" my home page content, in Spanish. Just let me know when you want it and if it is OK with you that is a new site.

Thanks, take care

March 11, 2008 - 8:12pm

Hi Aaron. I'll translate it to Portuguese.

March 11, 2008 - 8:20pm

Any site is fine by me as long as it is not like a porn site or gambling site. :)

Ideally it could be done before the month is out or within a month at the most. I don't want to wait too long though because the longer we wait the less likely it is to get done.

Thank you. Portuguese and Spanish so far...still many more languages to go. :)

March 11, 2008 - 8:22pm

You gotta keep in touch with the Dutch on this one, and I would love to help out. I am currently working on a new site and this would fit perfectly.

March 11, 2008 - 8:52pm

Ja ja ja ja...OK...No porn or gambling, I will get it done a lot sooner than that.

March 11, 2008 - 8:55pm

I am running a few well known blogs in Bulgarian language (one of them is about blogging) and would love to translate the Blogger's Guide to SEO.

March 11, 2008 - 9:01pm

Thank you 2 as well. So that makes Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch, and Bulgarian.

March 11, 2008 - 9:07pm

Russian! :)

March 11, 2008 - 9:37pm

I'll be happy to translate it to Czech.
Thanks for the opportunity.

Cheers,

I'll give it a go and translate it to Swedish.

March 11, 2008 - 10:02pm

Aaron, just to clarify: there are some subtle differences between Portuguese from Portugal and Brazilian Portuguese. I'll take care of both.

March 11, 2008 - 11:02pm

I will be happy to translate it in slovak and put it on seochat.sk, but some of the examples in the article are just not fitting the local industry. Do you think I could use other examples? Or should we all translate everything word by word? Should we all link to the exact same websites as the article is? An example: I would rather link to google.sk than to google.com etc.

March 12, 2008 - 12:51am

As long as it makes sense to people from your culture and is something you are proud to publish on your website that is all that matters. :)

March 11, 2008 - 11:21pm

I can translate it to Filipino (Tagalog). Please let me know when to start. Thanks.

March 11, 2008 - 11:44pm

That will be perfect for my new site. I can translate it to Croatian.

March 12, 2008 - 12:16am

Hi, I will translate it into Japanese.
Thanks for the opportunity, Aaron!

March 12, 2008 - 12:49am

Thanks everyone. So far that makes Portuguese (Portugal and Brazilian), Spanish, Dutch, Bulgarian, Russian, Czech, French, Swedish, Slovak, Tagalog, Croatian, and Japanese. :)

March 12, 2008 - 12:59am

hey Aaron,

let me put my name for romanian.

March 12, 2008 - 1:47am

OK lemon2x. So far that makes Portuguese (Portugal and Brazilian), Spanish, Dutch, Bulgarian, Russian, Czech, French, Swedish, Slovak, Tagalog, Croatian, Japanese, and Romanian. :)

March 12, 2008 - 2:33am

Shoot, I was hoping to do the French bit... Would it sway you if I pointed out that my connections in the French-Canadian SEO community are greater than the above gentleman's? For proof of which, see these two, as examples:
cityseo . blogspot.com/2006/08/yulbiz-montreal-business-blogging.html
cityseo . blogspot.com/2007/11/yulbiz-2007-best-of-montreals-business.html

(I broke the links so that it's not spammy self-promo, in case your blog auto-links urls dropped in comments. Also, the translation would be on my new, more professional site - seoroi . com.)

March 12, 2008 - 2:47am

I set it up as first come first serve, which I feel is fair, but if the above person does not complete I will ping you.

Hi Aaron - Så sørger jeg for den Danske oversættelse. (I would like to make sure, that it is translated into Danish. We will get on it right away:)

March 12, 2008 - 6:38am

We will translate it into German.

March 12, 2008 - 6:42am

Thanks you 2. So far that makes Portuguese (Portugal and Brazilian), Spanish, Dutch, Bulgarian, Russian, Czech, French, Swedish, Slovak, Tagalog, Croatian, Japanese, Romanian, Danish, and German.

March 12, 2008 - 8:22am

I volunteer for simplified & tradisional chinese.

March 12, 2008 - 9:15am

Hi Aaron, I'll translate it in italian language ;)

March 12, 2008 - 9:39am

I'll hold in line for croatian then if it is first come first serve ;)

March 12, 2008 - 12:59pm

I can make Blogger's Guide to SEO into clear Indonesian Language.

March 12, 2008 - 1:38pm

Hi Aaron,

The french translation is to be found here: -http://blog.indexweb.info/guide-seo-blogueurs-302.html

This is a first shot, as close as the original as possible. It will be improved hour after hour.

I will more than probably add links towards related french-written sources, or more specifically european tools and websites as a first comment to this post.

Cheers,

Denis

March 12, 2008 - 2:30pm

I will be wakato's back up for Japanese :’-(

March 12, 2008 - 3:04pm

Hi Aaron,

I have already published the Bulgarian translation in my most popular blog - NovaVizia.com. I will put links to the translation in another two blogs of mine, so I hope that many visitors will read SEO Blogger's Guide soon.

I will examine carefully the translation once again today and tomorrow, just to make sure that all the information (terms, links, quotations) is correct.

Here is my link:

Hungarians also would read your guide in their native language, so I tackle it.

We'd love to do a Polish translation of the guide. Thanks for the opportunity.

Hello Aaron,

Thanks for the opportunity.

March 14, 2008 - 11:46am

Hey Aaron, i really love the end of the article, it kinda questions one's way of thinking.

Anyway. Here is the DUTCH translation (red, white blue flag):

March 14, 2008 - 4:16pm

Hey Aaron,

I was wondering if the first come, first serve thing still applies, because if that is still the case, I would really love to see my version of the dutch translation be featured here instead of Satish's. I was planning on releasing mine tomorrow ... :S

March 14, 2008 - 9:23pm

Hey, I got Hebrew.

March 14, 2008 - 10:02pm

Hi DeFries
Send me a link to your version tomorrow.

Thanks for getting Hebrew Daniel.

So far that makes it
