A site i'm working on right now deals with Heating, Air Conditioning, Geothermal based in Longueil and Montreal (Quebec, Ontario, Canada). On one of the testimonial pages where it is all french they use the term Climatisation which is Air Conditioning in french. Would it be a bad practice to put the english version in the keywords even though it does not show up in this particular page.
My gut says not to do this since Google would not be able to reference any paragraphs with the term Air Conditioning but the main focus of this SEO implementation is Air Conditioning in Montreal / Longueuil Quebec since that is where they are based.
Thanks for any help!

If you mean the meta keywords tag, Google ignores it completely so it won't matter.
However, that's actually the perfect use for the tag for an engine like Yahoo who does use it. I wouldn't expect it to have much (if any) effect, but it won't hurt anything.

If you're doing a bilingual site, then the English version of that page would be the place to use keywords that are the English equivalents of the French ones, but I'm talking about the content of the page, not its meta data. As Jill says, the meta keywords tag is completely irrelevant to Google.
