There is a serious translation error on your page about IQ4

Hi Phase One, nice to see your 151MP camera. but when this wonderful page was translated into Chinese, there is a serious error.

https://www.phaseone.com/zh-CN/Camera-Systems/XF-Camera-System/IQ4/XF-IQ4-150MP-Camera-System.aspx

151MP i think means 151 million pixel. but the Chinese translation is 1,510,000 pixel. The translator apparently was confused by the unity of "M", because Chinese count not by 1,000,000, but by 10,000. so "00" was missing during the translation.

I hope you guys can fix that, because this is a critical info about your product.

Peace!

Hi Ulf,

thank you for the reply. I thought nobody cares.

I read more about IQ4 on your website and found more errors and bad expressions. For an example, when he/she translated "full frame medium format", "frame" was translated as "frame" in animation, like 30 frames per second. I'm pretty sure here "frame" means the sensor size. They are two different words in Chinese.

and "cable" was translated as those big cables used by city power grid, "sequencing" as counting order ... very sad to see your product is represented by some one who cares nothing about photography. I don't own a PhaseONE nor can I afford one, but I respect it more than this guy, whoever he/she is.

Peace!

We will of course address this as soon as we can.
I will also try to take assistance of one of my Chinese colleagues as well to respond to to this.
