When reading a question here on MSE just yet, I noticed this. Instead of the number 15, the badge count is written as a word.

I haven't found any other instance that replicates this.

    This happens when my browser auto translates the page to English for me on non-English SE sites. Is your browser doing that for you mistakenly on that page?

  • @Spevacus that must have been automatic or in some sneaky way on Chrome then, cause I haven't set anythung like that up.

This happens when the page is automatically or manually translated to English. Since there was Russian text in the question you linked, Google gave me an option to switch between translations. After translating to English, the result was the same as in your case:

This has been a known issue on non-English sites. For example, see: Vietnamese to English translation issue and Google Translate, languages, and numbers oh my!. This is not an issue from SE's side, but from Google's side. See: "Numbers translated into words (undesired)" on Google Translate Help Community.

    Yeah I recall that indeed. I however have never seen google translate anything for me on mobile Chrome. So perhaps I just missed it this time?

    @Luuklag: On PC, there's an option to automatically translate Russian to English: i.stack.imgur.com/JFOv2.png ["Always translate Russian"]

    @Luuklag: Have a look at this post on mobile Chrome. When you translate to English for the first time, you get a message (basically) saying that Russian text will be automatically translated to English from now on (this is the automatic translation I was talking about).

    It is possible that you might have missed it, because this is specifically a translation issue, and cannot be reproduced otherwise.
