按日程? puzzling [Copy link] 中文

I wouldn't expect them to do well in the English version of www.beijing2008.cn, but the Chinese version sucks as well.  It appears that somebody actually "reverse engineered" - started with an English version and translated it back into Chinese. As a result we are seeing "scheduled" being translated as "按日程"... It took me a while to figure out what they were trying to say... I would have it as "on schedule" in English but am extremely uneasy with the Chinese version - well, maybe "准时" would be easier to understand? Of course, I am guessing by "scheduled" they are trying to tell us the event has been scheduled and for the moment it is going to take place on time (no delay, no cancellation, kinda like a flight). So, does anyone think they have a better version or think I am being too picky? Either way, you are welcome to spit... it out.
