Translated from the French

This may be one of the worst translation from French to English or maybe it’s just a big, fat typo on the Yahoo! front page:

It would be better if the world understands

It would be so much better for everyone if the world understands Mr. Brown’s comment at the U.N. The folks who are responsible for the words on the Yahoo! front page aren’t helping the cause:

Every article has sported it

It seems that every article on Yahoo! Style has sported at least one typo and a grammatical goof:
