This is not a question of “honesty”, as there would be nothing dishonest in accepting both paid tests without saying anything, as long as you are not breaching any agreements with these outsourcers. There is nothing unethical about reusing a translation when it fits, just as there is nothing unethical about using translation memories and term bases.
However, if you disclose that you have received the same test from another outsourcer, you may breach an NDA, as this could provide the second outsourcer with knowledge they shouldn’t have and distort competition between the outsourcers.
We should not disclose anything about our clients unless there is a duty to do so.

This is the obvious problem that arises here.
