Can't speak for all Asian languages, but Chinese shares the same subject-verb-object basic sentence word placement with English, but the placement of just about every other word type is different. Autotranslation doesn't exaggerate this difference, it just makes it painfully visible.

Clearly translation is part of the problem, but some of those convolutions have to be beyond even auto-trans to create.
Although, knowing nothing about Asian languages, maybe there's a built-in complexity that auto-trans exaggerates.
