 Worst Translation Ever
In 1999, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, or HUD, decided to produce a pamphlet in nine languages ...

HUD asked the US Government Printing Office to handle the translation and printing of the work. The Printing Office contracted the job out to Thorner Press. Thorner turned to Cosmos Translation Services in Toronto to translate the English-language document into Creole.

The trouble is that HUD never specified to the government printer a French-Creole translation, common to Haiti; instead the brochure was translated by Cosmos into English-Creole.
