Hi,
I was reading about publishing books and problem that writer facing. Then, I found an article discuss mistakes that author does when writing his book. Mistakes such as, signaler/plural, past/present and grammar of-course. In my case, My Arabic language is perfect. English is good. Deutsche is zero. I paid $5 to a translator to translate my English text to Deutsche. I really don't know what she wrote! but I count in her feedbacks. So, as a book for kinds, is't fine to have 1 or 2 mistakes? Is it a common thing to see in short stories?

The occasional typo, sure, most people will give that a pass. But there are four corrections needed in just your first sentence, and people will not give that a pass. Most especially, I would think, when it comes to books that are going to be read by kids just learning to read.

No to both.
