Register translation horrors

A floor register is a rectangular device inserted into the floor of a house to allow air from the furnace in the basement to enter and heat (or cool) a room. That is what I was looking for on the Internet.

The text I found was absolutely horrible. Here it is:

How much fulfill contemporary registers cost?

It depends on locality you purchase the product. You can purchase the Antique Brass for around $23 online. I would shop around, since you can compare prices and one’s thing. Whereas blooming, you can composition other registers, which may substitute of higher merit, someday at a price you can heel.

How does my floor component into the registers design?

Positive debate, you should always meditate your floors, walls, and overall style of your bathroom before purchasing floor registers. If you hold a country locality however, most of the floor registers will hardihood with your room. However, if you keep a jewel bath, or skillful bath, the gold brass is the premium choice. Misty Bronze will chore as well, providing you have an atmosphere that matches the color.

I have marked in red the words or expressions that impair understanding. In many cases, the words used are either synonyms or alternate meanings of the original word. This is obviously a machine translation that has not been proofread and corrected by a linguist. If the author paid for the translation, he got garbage. If he got it for free, then his time was wasted. Either way, in my experience, readers will not tolerate this type of writing and will just click to the next site.
