I'm not saying a translated article must be flawless. But certainly if
we were paying for translations, it would be appropriate to have some

to be worse than the alternative, they can be encouraged to redirect
that effort more productively.
The source article should meet certain standards, but do not fall in the
trap where the translated articles must themselves be better than some
imagined standard. That would lead to a defunc process.
