I'm bilingual with English and an East Asian language. I can see how this mistranslation can arise.

Just keep in mind that translating between the languages aren't always as simple as using a dictionary.

For example, my people uses the same word for nature and God. I know this confuses a lot of westerners.

If you say the word "gullible" slowly, it sounds like oranges. Go ahead and try it.
