If you don't know if it's true or not true, then don't suggest it. It's insulting to any translator on that team, which are some of the best in the community. For your information, Chinese translations normally do not get the facts wrong. If there is a difference, it might be how a sentence is expressed or a verb here or there and even then, an error is rare because of how close the Chinese and Japanese language are. And before someone refers back to certain spoilers for DxD, zzhk specifically stated that it was a spoiler and to be careful with it. That was NOT an official translation.

More often than not, if there is a factual error, it's probably due to the A) the reader's ability B) how deep the reader reads. For all we know, you could be reading in Japanese, but you didn't read it very carefully. It happens all the time.
