I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked Nov 21, 2012

Because standards are normally so high in my pair. How could this have happened?

Lesson learned, I hope! Nov 22, 2012

It's ironic that this would happen on the exact white paper where Rudd is trying to emphasize the need for greater understanding of Asian languages. Perhaps after this mistake, the Australian government will know to spend more time on quality control...and maybe get a back translation.
