This is much better.  But let me try tuning the problem paragraph a bit, since I'm a native English speaker:

   If *exists_ok* is ``False`` (the default), an :exc:`OSError` is raised if
   the target directory already exists.  If *exists_ok* is ``True`` an
   :exc:`OSError` is still raised if the umask-masked *mode* is different from
   the existing mode, on systems where the mode is used.  :exc:`OSError` will
   also be raised if the directory creation fails.
