It is entirely possible that the translation for the series was done using preliminary scripts rather than the finished versions, resulting in the additional errors. The Japanese dub began airing 8 months after the American broadcast of the series and very quickly caught up with the United States.
As a matter of fact, the episodes " Autobot Spike " and " Changing Gears " premiered in Japan several weeks before they aired in the US!
