Louise is told to translate some overheard Mandarin and is momentarily confused at hearing the Mandarin word for "suits" before realizing that it is a reference to Mahjong. In actual Mandarin, the word for "suit" that refers to clothing and the word for "suit" that refers to a classification of cards in a card game are not the same word. If the speakers had really been using the word "suit" in the card-game sense, Louise might have initially translated it as "flower-color" and been confused, but the only way she could have translated it initially as "suit" would be if she already knew of the card-game meaning. However, this is not a "Factual Mistake". There is no indication in the movie that Louise ever thought of "suit" in the clothing-sense. There are indeed suits (in the card-game sense) in Mahjong, but Mahjong is not a card game; it is played with tiles. In other words, Louise may have translated it as "suit" in the card-game meaning without realizing yet that the referenced game was Mahjong; and that (as well as the fact that neither card-games nor Mahjong are directly linked to the topic of the rest of the Mandarin conversation) may be where Louise's initial confusion arose from.
After credits have finished, there is a short documentary on the making of Arrival.
