Non-professional translation: an example of the site welcome2018.com

One of the surprising cases of poor-quality translation into foreign languages ​​is the site welcome2018.com (fan portal).
Amazing for the reason that the site is the official "showcase" of Russia, created to support the World Cup in 2018. The portal is translated into several languages ​​and becomes a visual aid for poor-quality and unprofessional translation from Russian into foreign languages. We think that this is its positive role: using the example of welcome2018, in 10 minutes you can find all kinds of basic mistakes of translators, it is easy to understand the reason for their occurrence and draw conclusions for your own work.
The negative role, alas, is also obvious: the site contains so many errors in foreign versions that the target reader will be misled, surprised or simply won’t understand the information presented.
