Hey Forum,

I think tagging/key wording takes most on my time (like 80%) and I think the main reason is English is my 3rd language. Anyone else been here? what are the techniques you guys use?

It is also mine and I spend longer doing it than I would like...

There's really no shortcuts, you need to "think like a buyer". Luckily there's plenty of software out there available such as keyword.io and Stocksubmitter-built in.

Worst case scenario, you can pay someone to keyword for you.

Good luck

English is my first language. However, if I had to keyword in another language, I would probably use Google's translator.  I have used it to translate Japanese documents, though the sentence structure appears to be somewhat mistranslated.  I just tried it with some individual words, translating them to Spanish, my second language and it worked well

Using those online translators is still iffy business. So they are not perfect.
Go look in http://www.engrish.com/ and you will have an idea of what happens.  :D

Doesn't quite answer the question but by improving your English (either by lessons or just reading/speaking more), you'll inevitably improve your vocabulary. Without a good grasp, no software will really be accurate.

Compared to most languages out there, English is relatively simple!

You could consider getting a visual bilingual dictionary from your language to English. Dorling Kindersley do a lot, but I'm sure there are others in the market.
