Funny Chinese Language Translations

A poor translation can result in missed opportunities, costly mistakes or embarrassing situations. An error is even more striking when it is into your own language.  In the following we will illustrate a few examples of how embarrassing an apparently funny Chinese translation can be.

funny Chinese translation 1 Funny, right? This sign makes us laugh because we all know what this construction company was trying to say, but the English is so obviously wrong (word order, spelling… ) Hey, we just don’t say it like that in English, right? funny Chinese translation 2 Here, in Beijing, a restaurant wanted to attract international visitors during the Olympic games. They didn’t speak any English, so they used a computer program. They sent out their text to be translated, and assumed that the text they got back said the same thing. The result speaks for itself. And no professional human translator in sight.
