I posted the following over at seochat.com, but received no reply. I'd really appreciate some input, thank you.
I have a question regarding the impact the following process may have on our visibility to international search engines:
My company needs international visibility, though we don't have the capital resources to maintain 10+ language variant websites. The solution we have discussed internally is to have a bells and whistles English language website with what can best be described as 'static' single pages for each other required language, e.g. French, Arabic and Spanish, etc. that will include all crucial information translated from the primary English language website.
Obviously, we will optimise all content by using copywriters and keywords specific to each language and adjusting the Arabic website to a right-to-left format.
And, perhaps as importantly, each 'static' page will link to the main website's slideshow page where visitors can see more photographs of our product in application.
Our primary business is as a supplier of washbasin equipment for new build architecture projects, and as such, the majority of our product enquiries along with CAD drawings will come from/be accessed by those with a basic understanding of English. We do, however, require visibility to potential private clients from across the world, and that is where our 'static' localised pages will feature.
I hope this is enough information, if not, please shout.
