    I posted a job on odesk for writing Spanish articles. some people in Bangladesh responded. So I was pretty suspicious. Living in Bangladesh and speaking spanish? hmmmm

    Then I posted another job, this time for Japanese. This one was just to test and see if they will apply. Sure enough, they did. So guy lives in Bangladesh, and speaks Spanish AND Japanese. That's pretty suspicious.

    My conclusion is these are just scammers. But I cant figure out how they scam. Will they just copy/paste some garbage and hope you won't notice and pay them?

    Hey how can you call them scammers ? don't do that anymore you want your job to be done ? don't you ? no matter how they do it..will you pay more if they do legit ? when you will pay more you will get quality work..when you pay low the quality will be low.. You can see You can find SEO workers in 1$-3$ per hours..but the original experts won't do in that rate.. like they will apply 5$-15$ or more.. So it's based on quality..

    This is scam. They use autotranslators, no exceptions.
    If you want good translation hire native speakers only, who live in their native countries (there might be many such countries, for example native Spanics ones) or in other similarly developed countries, the nearer to native country the better. Even then I look for traces of bidders on Internet, to find if they are real people and proofread their work from time to time.
