Just as another example of this that I found interesting:

My dad got a mini hot plate/mugwarmer for Xmas. On one side the label
says "Keeps your coffee, tea, and soup at perfect drinking temperature."
On the other side it says "Maintient vos...a parfait temperature pour
leur consommation", ie English "drinking temperature" = French
"temperature for their consumption".
