If you take a look at

you will see that some pages have gotten strong .edu backlinks by providing translations. How do you think this is achieved? Do they contact the doctors/scientists++ directly and ask if they can provide translations in exchange for a backlink, or do you think there is another method behind it?

Kinda looks like they translate the article, stick it up on their site and then probably email the original author saying "hey I've translated your article to x language, it's up here" and send them the url. (obviously a better crafted email is needed ;)). Then by the looks of it some just redirect that url to the homepage or elsewhere after the link has been up on the .edu for some time.

That's right ;)

99% of the time I hate link outreach. In fact, my method of ranking for my clients over the last decade has been to use my own sites. I don't trust anyone's PBNs and link outreach is stupid.

CONSIDERING THAT -- link outreach to .edu sites is fine. I have a site that is ranking well because I reached out to some professors and showed them my site. For the sake of being fair, this was 8 years ago.

Those pages look like they're the product of basic outreach.

They don't look all that unusual.

As long as you have a legit-looking site and your translations are on point (and I'm not talking about Google Translate here; I'm talking about actual hand translation or expert translation), you should be able to get decent .edu links to your translated page.

The academics and educational institutions that you're reaching out to would think that you're doing them the favor, especially if they have a basic idea of the language you've translated their content to.

I would customize the outreach and not make it too obvious that I'm doing it on an industrial level.

Many edu backlinks are free like they can be inserted via profiles insertion and other means
