I'm running an event site in Estonia. In general it's a list of events happening in the near future. Event description is always in Estonian.

Now, there are a lot of russians in Estonia and I would like to translate the site and serve it on a different subdomain. So all the buttons, links and etc will be in Russian but event description will still be in Estonian. (I can't translate every event).

Will I get punished for duplicate content in this case? What can I do about it? Use canonical tag and point russian pages to estonian ones? Or noindex the whole russian subdomain (I don't really care if the russian subdomain shows up in google search or not)? Any other ideas?

Since there's no such thing as a duplicate content penalty, there's no fear of getting "punished."

Please see our numerous other threads regarding duplicate content for more explanation.
