It is probably for English comprehension. If the translation was more
literal, it might be confusing:
"God made the one not knowing sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might
become the righteousness of God"
This could mean that he did not know about sin, or had never seen it. The
Hebrew idea of experiencing would not necessarily come across. Even if the
translation was "experiencing," people might think that he had no run-in
with sin from other people. The idea is that he did not experience sin
because he never committed it. Since he did not commit sin, he had no sin.
