I agree with you, but this seems to be the standard translation since I've seen it in several places... I noticed that the Japanese usually add a lot of unnecessary "the" when they speek english probably because it's difficult for them to judge when and when not to use it. Same is true for Chinese and South-East Asian people. Maybe the translator had the same trouble

Most of the translations come from just a few sources and are copied over and over, perpetuating the same mistakes. In any case there's a danger in trying to analyze translated sources too closely because they can never completely duplicate the original.
