Articles about Calc functions have been gradually improved and provided for translation over the past few years:

Now it has been pointed out that errors have slipped into the translated versions due to lack of review.

As an example, an English source page might say things like "If the second argument is less than 1, the function results in an error", whereas the translated page(s) say "If the second argument is equal to or less than 0, the function results in an error". A mistake in the numeric value, and another one in the mention of the comparison operator.

These errors seem to be the result of too hasty copying & pasting of earlier translated strings. Alternatively, it might be a case of picking a suggestion from the translation memory without checking its accuracy.

It is strongly recommended to tackle the translation of Calc function articles as a team, with at least one translator reviewing the work of the other.
