Hoshino Group spelling mistake! eeek!

How's this for pedantry; I just found a spelling mistake on a significant part of Hoshino Group's website.

http://www.hoshinogakki.co.jp/hoshin...greetings.html

And that aside, the slogans aren't translated too well. They don't read very well.
I'm quite surprised a large corporation like Hoshino haven't had better proof-reading done.

I'll do it for an RG3120

Emproyees = Employees, etc...

Seriously.

Its not really the spelling that gets me, but the horrific grammar.

It was a period characterized by war and a long trail of difficult trials and obstacles. That Hoshino was able to emerge today as a leading instrument maker is due in large measure to our customers, lovers of fine music and fine musical instruments who entrusted their hopes and dreams with us

Of course these pages were written from people who's English is a second language, so its mildly forgivable.

No, translators translate word for word and have no grammar at all, and don't misspell words, unlike you...
