This thread is part of the Translator playground

Need a quick break from work? In this forum translators and language professionals can share quotes about translation, tongue twisters and word plays, translation challenges, etc.
All are welcome to participate and to add new items to this and the other areas of the Translator playground

I want to share with you a video featuring a short compilation of translation blunders.
You can watch the video here .
As part of the feedback received on Facebook on this video someone suggested a nice idea "I think you should translate the message from the ending to all those languages".
If you enjoy this video and you fancy the idea of translating the message at the ending into as many languages as possible, you can post below the translation + language and I'll include it in this post.
"If you want it done right the first time, hire a professional translator."
Wenn Sie es von Anfang an richtig haben wollen, dann beauftragen Sie eine/n professionelle/n Übersetzer/in
Wanneer het meteen goed moet zijn, schakel dan een professionele vertaler in.
Si vous souhaitez faire les choses bien, faites appel à un traducteur professionnel.
Se per una volta volete fare le cose per bene, servitevi di un traduttore professionista.
