← Translations of my books

"What to do about it, and how to avoid the same thing happening in the future?"

I assume that the questionable translations were published in languages where reliable proof readers are hard to come by?

Anyway, there must be a way of inserting a proof reading stage at your end, by people you can trust, into the process of publishing translations of your books. If a translation is found to be lacking in standard, I assume that you could then veto it before the books are printed.
