This one is from a while back but I've wondered how the mistake happened.

Mrs. Clinton says she worked hard to get it right, but evidently not hard enough. Anyone know what happened with the translation here?

Two letters made the difference. Yet, the proper translation would be "overload", not "overcharge".
"Reset" should be "pe-re-zag-ruz-ka", while Hillary gave Lavrov the button with "pe-reg-ruz-ka" on it.
