Christie's Russian Website Translation Mistakes


Two weeks ago one of our professional Russian English translators who is a big fan of Christie's auctions found out that their website have a Russian version of the site.
And she let them know that the translation was done very poorly with a lot of syntax and orthographic mistakes. (Just a little note to everyone: If you would like to avoid translation services like that, you should be using Certified Russian translation instead of just regular translation services.) The page I'm talking about is here: christies.com/features/welcome/russian
I also noticed the same kind of mistakes on two other pages: christies.com/features/welcome/russian/buy.aspx and this one christies.com/features/welcome/russian/sell.aspx (Copy and paste into your browser these links to check them out).

On the images below you can clearly see all the mistakes I'm talking about. Of course, if you do understand Russian language.

As far as me, I think that every certified Russian translator can correct those mistakes and/or do a professional English Russian website translation of Cristie's website. I think that a well-respected auction and a brand name like Christie's should have a perfect image.

Here are more images from their website. I marked some obvious mistakes. But of course there are a lot more. You just need to read it carefully and you'll find all of them. I think there are from 13 to 25 mistakes overall on the Russian version of Christie's web site.
