About the foreign language translations

What would happen if 2 native speakers of a foreign language decided to translate and copy edit an article into their language, but actually wrote something completely different to the original article?

I mean, would the article be published until some other native speakers come along and realise "Hey, Joel didn't write 'blah blah blah'"?

just wondering

  Actually Joel created e-mail lists to some of the languages translators and copy-editors.  This lest us exchange information about the current progress of the job, and also publish the translated text in the list before publishing it, so everybody can review it.

I think we all will read the articles in the
translated form even if only to discover
if we understand them in the first place :)

Then we can send suggestions and corrections when they are nedded...
