This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.
Problem: The client has a site with default language Dutch, and he created the pages originally in Dutch and then translated to English. Then he wanted to add French, and wanted to know if it is ok to translate one page from English (second language) to French? Solution:
If your post is created originally in Dutch and you want to translate it to English and French, it is better to always use the Dutch post as a source for the two languages, and avoid translating from Dutch -> English and then English -> French, better to also use Dutch -> French
