Do you need help planning your trip?
Email your questions to:
여행 계획을 세우는 데 도움이 필요하신가요?
궁금한 점을 이메일로 물어보세요
->The sentence structure follows English grammar so sounds unnatural. The verb part ’email your questions’ reads a polite verb form which is not a proper wording.

Got an order, payment or refund question?
Email our order support team.
주문, 결제 또는 환불에 관해 궁금한 점이 있나요?
주문 지원팀으로 이메일하십시오.
->The verb parts in both sentences are not standard and sound awkward.

Quick question.
Post your question on
our Facebook page
빠른 응답
->The translations don’t match with the source context. The title text ‘quick question’ is translated into ‘quick answers.’ The body sentence ‘Post your question on our Facebook page’ is shortened too much and the FB hyperlink is not applied so the two noun phrases are meaningless in context.

Owned by the European Railways
소유자: European Railways
->’owned’ is translated into ‘a person who owned’ and reads an awkward noun.
