Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
Rolan Bykov was born to a Jewish family in Kiev.
He was born Rolan Antonovich Bykov, but in his official documents the name consistently was, following an official's mistake in 1946, misspelt as Roland Anatolyevich (a patronymic from a different name; Bykov's father was Anton and not Anatoly). As an actor, however, he always was called Rolan Bykov and never Roland.
