I fok horses. Pardon? Yes, paarden

This is the punch line of a joke about quality translations. The Dutch Wikipedia community voted for the Wikipedia survey to be removed. The translation is considered to be beyond poor.

To make things worse, there is talk about another translation that is said to be good. There are complaints about a lack of communication, no spell checking used, no feed back..

As surveys are said to have a tendency to be insistent, the survey has been turned off in the CSS. The hope is expressed for a better translation in the near future. With no proper tooling in place it is not that straight forward.
