We are looking for PL>EN and vice versa translators who have had the experience of coming across badly translated articles that caused embarrassment or misunderstanding etc. This is for a marketing opportunity and what we are looking for is a quote or anecdote from translators and examples of where things went wrong. We want to demonstrate why it is vital to use professional and qualified translators .

Who is we and what do you want to do with the quotes? Dec 8, 2006

Hello Mirka,

though I am not one of the translators you are looking for, I wonder what you wish to do with the quotes and anecdotes.

If you want to publish them or use them for advertisement purposes on your agency's website, I think you should say so in advance.
