Turkish Airlines has launched a "Fly Good Feel Good" program in collaboration with Mehmet Öz, making a big campaign which unfortunately turned out to be "Fly Good Feel Bad" for me. The following screenshots are from the corresponding videos. You be the judge and tell me if I am right or wrong.
We start with the Introduction video. I give the length of the videos as well to have an idea of the "density" of mistakes. This is 57 seconds.
Traveling with children - 2:38 mins
Traveling while pregnant- 5:44 mins
And do you know where they got the "inconvenience" from? I was curious and checked the most used Turkish-English online translator tureng.com for the Turkish word that was used, engel. Guess what came up?
The first one is wrong. It should be as in the second like "end of THE 35th week"
Jetlag- 2:08 mins
Blocked nose and ear trouble- 2:58 mins
Massage- 4:57 mins
Exercises- 8:49 mins
"A half circle" is the correct one.
Eating while flying- 1:51 mins
"I recommend that all our guests prefer" or "I recommend all of our guests to prefer"
Preparing for a flight- 1:54 mins
I do not know about you but these are way too many mistakes for such a reputable company like Turkish Airlines to make in such a short space. These are sloppy mistakes, they are mistakes that show ignorance. They're not like the below mistake of "Before traveling with youR child..." (under the allergies section in their website)
This mistake can be attributed to simple human error; we are all humans and we err. However, the mistakes in the subtitles is nothing but sloppiness and ignorance, and these are things not acceptable in such a prestigious company.
I have hundreds of articles on my website, articles with long and detailed analysis, and you know what? I definitely do not have so many sloppy mistakes. These mistakes on a campaign of Turkish Airlines are totally UNACCEPTABLE and they really owe me for my contribution to their quality. Of course, after all this work and time spent, they owe me more than one simple ticket. They could award me a hundred thousand miles for example!
Or even two hundred thousand...
