I noticed that if I translate content from French into English, CopyScape passes that content.

Can Google detect that the content was translated? CopyScape determined that it is plagiarism free.

I'm using Google translator.

    How are you translating the content? Are you doing a machine translation or are you using a person that knows both languages well and can write English like a native speaker? Commented Oct 5, 2016 at 10:52

No, Google does not view translated content as duplicate, as content in another language is different than if it is appearing in the same language twice.However, it is recommended to have a human translation as Googlebots can tell if the site has been translated using Google Translate and may view it as 'spammy'.
