When visitors comes to my site and if I translate my web site onfly into different languages using Google translation service, google thinks I am spamming? Any problems? (apart from gibberish type language it produces).

thank you!!

The closest experience I have to what you're describing dates back almost ten years, when I put a Babelfish translator gizmo on a site. It didn't work very well, but I didn't see any evidence that the search engines had any issues with it. Like Google Translate, it was provided by a search engine too.

Obviously, my experience from a decade ago doesn't say much about your experience now, but I don't see any reason to think the engines would have a problem with using Google Translate. That's what it's for. But like you said, its output isn't much better than what I got out of Babelfish. I don't think it's worth using. If your audience needs to see your site in multiple languages, it's probably worth the investment to get your content translated by a human.
