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 level of expectations for the quality of the result. With volunteers, any honest effort is encouraged, although if the quality is low enough to be worse than the alternative, they can be encouraged to redirect that effort more productively.
