I'm not sure you can literally translate the "I can't be bothered" to spanish.

maybe I'd say "no vale la pena a cambiar/a cambiarlo" which means "its not worth the trouble to change it". It's a figure of speech.

I would write, "Estudiaré aquí porque no me puedo molestar para cambiar." but I`m not a native speaker.

You can't translate it literally but something like this could work

  • Voy a estudiar aquí porque no me molesta cambiar.

either your source is wrong or you misinterpreted it.

I don't understand what you mean. "My" source is a comparison between "many" translations from different texts. I trust it because I really doubt ever single one of them is wrong.

Because I'm a native Spanish and not English speaker I rely on sources like this when I'm not sure. In the end my translation is just a suggestion.

The best you can do it is not translate exactly at it is but try to approximate to the meaning. "Estudiaré aquí porque no me molesta cambiar".
