Sometimes it's not inaccuracy that's the problem with a translation, but too much accuracy! I've recently been watching the very last episodes of my favourite sci-fi show, "Fringe", online. When Olivia asks Peter, "How far to the house?" his vague reply is. "I'm guessing not more than a couple hundred yards". But the sub-titles have it as, "I'm guessing not more than 182.88 metres". Now that's some guess!
