I was going to say the same. Nearly 99 % of vocabulary is very clear and 
causes no problems. And even those who were ambiguous in the past years 
have been solved, so there is very small risk for bad translations.

The only thing that will happen is when language X has two words for one 
english word, and then we will have to ask Maltz. But that's no new 
problem, and still very rare as said before.

By the way:
The perfect thing with this project is that having more languages it 
will get easier to compare, and more languages can be added. For 
instance, when in doubt, the translator can still check what other 
languages did with a word.

I definitely support this project! majQa'.
