The Murky Waters Of Translation Errors

Translating from one language to another is a risky process. Because you’re not just translating words and expressions. Google Translate can do that. You’re actually conveying the subtle nuances of the original language with the history and culture, social upheavals and folklore, and every hint and undertone that that word has in the collective consciousness of its people to another language with its own intricacies. It’s no wonder that mistakes happen more often than not. Some are accidenta...
