According to a REGNUM news agency report, on January 13, Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s “National Unification” party, made a statement regarding the way out of the political crisis, but if we will turn to politician’s Twitter, an interpretation, given by Regnum can be considered as MOSTLY FALSE.
LITTLE BIG INACCURACY
In her tweet post, dated by January 13, Marine Le Pen, withstood her speech, but there is one omission in translation into Russian. Marine Le Pen claimed that “In the context of the popular revolt of the Yellow Vests, these #Europeans2019 offers the opportunity to untie the political crisis born from blindness, intransigence, class contempt, tax spoliation and the human disconnection from President”. The last word is of great importance for the understanding of the whole phrase. The Russian agency interpreted it in it’s own way: “In the context of a revolt of “yellow vests” this elections will become an opportunity to extinguish a political crisis, irreconcilability, class contempt, dissociation of people“. Tax spoliation is not mentioned at all.
The difference is surprising. In her statement Marine Le Pen said that the upcoming elections WILL GIVE AN OPPORTUNITY to resolve the political crisis that was born <…>. The Regnum agency misinterprets the meaning, saying that these elections will resolve a political crisis, intransigence, class disdain and DISUNITY. It is worth paying attention to the last word, since in the origin the party leader says that people are disunited with the president. The Russian media reports that people cannot find common ground between themselves. Such an inaccuracy in translation in the condition of language ignorance is a big media misstep.
FOCUS ON DATA
The information also mentiones the number of supporters, presented at the event: 2000. According to Le Monde, there were about 1,500 supporters. Inaccuracies indicate some lack of professionalism or deliberate falsification of facts.
