Are pages that are translated into another language considered duplicate content?

Just wondering what the general consensus is on this - we have a ski chalet client who wants to get their english pages translated and ranking for French and German. Thoughts on how this should best be handled?

According to Google's Search Advocate, John Mueller;
"Assuming that you have content in German and English, whether or not it's a comparable substance anyway interpreted, that isn't duplicate substance. It's foreign words. Foreign words on the page. These are understandings or interpretations, so it's not ordinarily a duplicate.
However, you should note that;
Content translated by humans is better than auto-generated translation content as machines can't help you with keywords to rank in search engines. so it's better to hire a translation company to construct language-rich and instructive meaningful content.

It won't be counted as duplicate content. Human translation prevents duplicate material, whereas machine translation does not, therefore contact a translation service to develop language-rich and informative content if you want to rank in search engines.
