The review does note that "The translation, while mostly making sense, is a long way below professional standards."

Are there no editorial standards in place? I know chess publishers are on the whole sloppy to say the least but if its left unedited then it will only encourage content to be ghost written, which is what too many are already doing.

Since the comment by MJM is a generalisation we must presume he means every chess publisher (unless anyone else knows differently).
