One of my client's websites has multiple language pages. English is the default language. And all other language page content uses Google translated content.

Is there any duplication issue for this?

Nope and no penalty otherwise, either.

No, it's treated as different content.

Translated content= content

So, the same questions that applies to the quality of content also applies to the translated one.

The source doesn't matter, what matters is how useful and original it is.

So, using just automatic translation is not a good idea.

Will the content rank with automatic translation? Probably no

Will you get a penalty? Maybe

In regards to duplication, you're good. Google doesn't consider translated content as duplicate. You can also use href lang on translated pages
