Inappropriate idiom

Like an inappropriate metaphor, an idiom can be can invoke an incorrect or inappropriate image or inference. For example, "He fell into the pool, and unable to swim, floundered like a fish out of water."
When worldbuilding and inventing languages, translation into English idioms can produce (potentially subtle) inappropriate use of idioms, for example, aliens living on a planet with no moon and tidally locked (or an artificial structure, such as a ringworld), using the idiom "go with the tide" would seem to be unnatural. -- (Source: Fritz Freiheit) (e)
