Another user's complaint: Thread:User talk:Moon0319/有關你嘅粵文翻譯. You may copypaste it into https://www.bing.com/Translator to get the gist. It's Cantonese.

Subject: Regarding your Cantonese translations

Content: Hello, I have undone many of your translations. Why don't you talk about why you changed the translations to weird ones? Translations have to be understandable by users.

Quite a number of their translations were made without regard to context, some others contain rarely used words that took me a while to understand. I suspect that they may be a native Chinese user (i.e. non-Cantonese user), translating messages into Chinese and making use of Cantonese words lists to convert the words.

I have reviewed some of their translations. There are acceptable translations, but those are probably made with the help of identical messages.
