How do I report a user who has been translating my language all wrong?

I have been translating tokens in Hindi language and I keep coming across answers submitted by this user and these are being used currently by DuckDuckGo. His answers are clearly copied from some freeware translation app (worse than google translate).All translations are nowhere close to the correct form. Is there any way to report the answers or downvote them? He has about 70+ contributions in this language, including some very irresponsible translations of contexts phrases.

He is an otherwise active and contributor in Urdu language so I do not wish to mention the username publically.

Usually to the Translation Manager, but there's no one for Hindi currently. I could set his tokens as invalid but you need to tell at least a token where he's present, the one in the pic you attached has no translation now.
Which are the wrong contexts? Are all of his translations in Hindi wrong?

Yes all the tokens I came across were absolutely wrong. (they are literal translations and make no sense actually)

Some of the tokens

https://duck.co/translate/tokenlanguage/...
https://duck.co/translate/tokenlanguage/...
.

I can try and submit the entire list, if that's the only way.
In the meanwhile please let me know if there is any way to request DuckDuckGo to appoint a translation manager.

I'm a TM, I set some of them as invalid and I see now he's a Community Leader. Before preceeding let me speak with other TMs.

Hi all,

I am not an expert in Hindi, I transliterated to most of the tokens and feel free to invalid all my tokens.

Let me know if you have any questions

Thanks for you answer, I'm going to label the invalid tokens.

PS: i am only talking about his Hindi translations.
Please do not summarily disqualify his contributions in other languages.
