002 Translate Content On Your Blog

Translating Web content on a blog? Many are already doing it, but there is still room for some “niche” content and other languages less exploited than English…

There is already a multitude of blogs and websites that do this, but there is room for some so-called “niche” content or for languages other than English. For example, if you are a perfect bilingual in French/Mandarin, there are plenty of websites and blogs in China with content that may interest many users who do not speak that language. And the topics are interesting too: cooking recipes, economy/stock market, arts, politics…

However, be careful not to translate the entire text word for word because you could have trouble with the law for copyright issues (unless you have an agreement with the author), but also be penalized in your SEO by Google. Summarise, and do not forget to quote your sources.

IIt is certain that the subject/language combination is also quite important here. Translating an article about Inca earthenware in Quechua into Luxembourgish will probably not be widely consulted nor popular. Although I am using a very extreme example here, it is to get you thinking about this topic before you head down that road. Bear in mind that the subject’s popularity is crucial if the goal is to make money.

You could also write a review of the articles you translate or complete the information. Anything that might be of interest to your readers is welcome.

It is also good to know that if the article you wrote is of high quality, you may be able to offer it to other media (web or paper) in exchange for money or traffic to your page.

Finally, for the creation of the blog, there are free ways that are very easy to use such as WordPress.

What are the Best Solutions to Create Your Website?

If you need a website but have no technical knowledge and little budget, there are several options for you. Let’s see which tools exist and which are the most suitable for your project. Here’s the program: What Are the Main...

  • You calmly work from home.
  • Read fascinating articles and learn a lot about other cultures.
  • Have the ability to make friends on the other side of the world.


  • Amount of uncertain income.
  • It can take a long time before you have a large number of readers.

Environmental and climate change issues are more than ever at the heart of the concerns of this 21st century, which is why I am proposing a few ideas that will enable you to limit the negative impact that the implementation of this idea could have.

These solutions that I suggest are sometimes largely insufficient to compensate for these negative impacts, such as carbon offsetting. Unfortunately, there is not always an ideal and 100% efficient solution, far from it. And if you have others, please do not hesitate to share them in the comments below.

  • The first element is of course the computer. If you have one, try to keep it as long as possible before changing. If it’s a little slow, simply reset it, add some RAM and/or an SSD drive. You will see that the result will be spectacular. And then get it fixed if it’s broken. In most cases, the problem will be minor and inexpensive.

    If you need to change it, maybe explore the second-hand option first? And if you prefer new equipment, choose a laptop rather than a tower (much more energy consuming) and opt for a brand that cares about the environment.

  • The second element is online storage. The world’s data center s alone are responsible for a large portion of the world’s GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emissions. There are some services that use renewable energy to power all their machines. This is the case of Apple and Google.

    However, the best solution remains local storage, on an external hard drive for example, which will only consume energy when you plug it in. Moreover, the data transfer will be much faster and it will cost you much less.

Disclaimer, please read this Legal and administrative aspects of the ideas you'll find on Sweekr are rarely discussed because they vary greatly depending on the country you live in. I would advise you to check with your local government before starting any business. Keep in mind that if you make money, the state will ask for "its share" in order to guarantee the proper functioning of schools, hospitals and other public services. Therefore, you will probably have to acquire a micro-entrepreneur status, or any other similar.
