'Biliguality' saturates the number of pages (negative), but it has the same
effect on the amount of content (positive). Search engines do not read or
translate your page, so you will /not/ be penalised on the basis of
producing similar content in multiple languages. You /may/, however, need to
improve your site SEO-wise, using the traditional techniques.
Hope it helps,
