Not a native speaker, but...

a lot of it seemed nonsensical or non-idiomatic.

Machine translation is OK-ish between similar languages (like English and Dutch); between such dissimilar languages as Dutch and Japanese, it tends to fail hard.

I have a Dutch surname, but my family hasn't spoken Dutch in generations.
