Translation issues

Amit Varma raises a valid point about the issue of translation in the media. I've always been irritated by the way NDTV chooses to translate quotes. Invariably, its a summary of what the speaker has just spoken - and quite often it isnt as accurate. And from what little I've seen of other news channels, the problem isnt restricted to NDTV alone.

I'd rather have the news channels translate what the speaker says word-by-word, and leave it to the viewers to summarize.
