Tips: How To Avoid Being Scammed By The “Bad Translator” Trick

This is a well known trick, and one that is easy to fall for. You send a translation out for review by a third party or someone on staff, they respond that it is an absolutely horrible translation.

Big companies with sizable translation budgets should be especially wary of this trick.
