I am a translator working on Vietnamese language. I was surprised to see
the translation in the two links above is done correctly (although I've
edited a bit for more understandable). It's not like someone has used
Google Translate or other machine translation tools.

The translator is https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Varnent. I am
curious whether he also understands this language? Despite his personal
page did not show it. I also have the same questions with the Vietnamese
translation of Call for candidates
It was done by a staff of WMF (Azariv), and I don't think he could
understand a strange language such as Vietnamese. I am active in many
Wikimedia projects in Vietnamese, but had never seen him before.
