I wonder if there's some feedback loop caused by websites that used google translate itself to offer the alternative versions :)

If I recall correctly, that is one of the reasons that Google made the translation API a paid service. Regardless, in those cases, I suspect Google would be able flag their own translations and avoid using them, It would be much more interesting if their were a couple of companies dueing translations on many websites without coordination, or if one of them tries to sabotoge the others with subtly bad translations.
