I was invited by Zazzle Brasil to open a store in Portuguese.  It makes sense for the local market since the translations are very poor.  However, I wonder if it's a good strategy. 

Today I have products in four languages (the greeting cards) in my store.  Even for those products in which the language doesn't make any difference, but are related to a country (for instance, images with acountry flag), I add keywords in that specific language. 

What do you think? Would you start a local store?

I wouldn't because Zazzle translates my english keywords to german and other, also i wouldn have no time for this. I work through [zazzle.com] - not any local .de or .uk to have more stuff for design.

But have you seen the translations?  They're awful!  Not only description becomes nonsense, but keywords are often translated wrong when a word has more than one meaning, each as a different word in the other language.

Of course i saw it, have the same problems on Fotolia or 123RF but it's impossible for me to maintain all of this.
Most important keywords are translated and i have to deal with it.
My first sale on Zazzle was from Germany ;) I saw in email this ugly translation.
If You have time and You really need those descriptions to be correct - You have to set local store. I see no other solution.
