  1. Basically I'm wondering how many search queries are made in English and how many in other languages. Anyone having an idea? Of course most contributors will tag their images mainly with English terms. As a bit of a polyglot myself (I speak 8 languages), I have become used - besides English & Latin - to tagging my wildlife images with the vernacular names in Dutch, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Polish as well. A habit I started a couple of years ago on my Flickr-stream for the benefit of my many foreign contacts . ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/gerbosma/ ) In the search queries that generate hits I hardly ever find non-English search terms though, ocasionally the odd German, Dutch or Polish one. Tagging in languages other than English could of course have the advantage of a lot fewer images showing up and mine often constituting a considerable portion of them. Still I don't really have the idea that too many Alamy customers search in other languages than English. Considering the fact that Alamy has a German office as well, I had expected a lot more German searches (I translate all the main keywords in german as well), but so far that has been rather disappointing. Does anyone else have good experiences with tagging in other languages? If so, do they result in sales? Would like to have your feedback on this, thanks!
