Why did you capitalize "world"?

This person has contacts from all over the world; I've definitely seen this user active in linguistics groups and forums on Facebook asking for translations of this and other sentences (which I subsequently see uploaded here).

The biggest mistakes are usually by people who don't know how to transliterate the name "Burj Khalifa", as was the case for Burmese, Khmer, among others. I also noticed that for some of the Romance languages, the indefinite article was used instead of the definite article (this has since been fixed). Any mistakes remaining would be by people who didn't understand the English sentence to begin with.
