I think the inability to understand due to accent or other factors is key. I remember the story in the reading about someone having the wrong organ removed. While I can’t imagine the wrong organ being removed in the translation field, there is still potential for serious consequences and grave danger. I think translating a medicine label wrong is less likely, but that could also lead to a very risky outcome.
