Reference: Weird English ... even for financial

Reference information:
To reach its target, the fund concentrates on investments in good equities. The compartment can use a rang of techniques such as swaps, options, intendeds and other stemming instruments, with good establishment. Although the realization of its objective is its first preoccupation, it does not constitute one firm commitment for the compartment and does not apply to the stockholder who sells his actions before the skyline of fixed investment.

That's been translated by either a machine translation service or a non-native speaker with zero knowledge of finance and investment.

Native speaker of: Native in EnglishEnglish

Peer comments on this reference comment (and responses from the reference poster)
agree  Lianne van de Ven: I had not even anticipated that: that we get machine translated English texts to translate into other target languages. Even when they are translated by a human, they are often already hard to do.//I recently had to translate "expensed" so I was curious.
