I have a situation I've never encountered before. I'm running a fantasy sports game which is entirely in English. I am first Google result for some of the most relevant English keyword searches. However, since the site has to do with a specific country league, a lot of people search for it in that language.

Now, I'm still 3rd or 4th for some of the most relevant keywords in that language, but I'd like to be first. Creating a whole version of the site for that language is not an option - the site is big, I don't speak the language and it would not pay off to make that investment.

I also can't just stick foreign words into my English pages too often, as it would look ridiculous. So, can anyone make any suggestions as to how to achieve higher rank in a specific foreign language while keeping the site (almost) entirely in English?

    Sure, build pages written in that language on your domain. You can take what you've written already and go hire someone on odesk to translate for you. You can find good quality people who will work for $6/hour or less. So basically take the page that is ranking well in English, and do exactly what you're doing but in the foreign language. If you want to take it further, build out your most important pages in that language and give them an option to change from english to that language on the page.
