Does this "terrible" mean as fearful and horrible in its contents, or as very bad in its condition or quality?

My first instinct is "poorly written", but it can also refer to the content. Bad condition would rather use rossz.

There's a better word for "terrible": borzalmás. "Milyen volt a napod?" "Borzalmás!"
