Examples

  • The same cannot be said of the uneven Englishing of "Hergé: The Man Who Created Tintin," which boasts a howler on the preface's first page: "It's still difficult to underestimate the impact of [Hergé's] work on several generations of Europeans" and edulcorates a French racial slur, nègre, by translating it as "Negro."
