    Translation going wrong are translation from different language into English. I'll post a few and will post other translations going wrong later on.

    Don't be shy, if you have example of your own, don't hestitate to post them and make us laugh.


    Hope you enjoy these translation going wrong. More to come. Don't forget to post your own translations going wrong.


    :)

    Seen so many I couldn’t count but the one that stays in my mind was a disabl toilet labelled “Cripples” that I saw in China somewhere.

    Someone post those Chinese-bumper-stickers. You know the ones, they're in one of the funny-images thread.

    Edit* These are the ones I'm talking about.

    Where are you getting these from? Things you pass by?

    No, I found these on the internet (a website) a few years ago.

    Just rode half way across the country to a nice resort only to find the pool area is a bit kinky:

    About the new Thrustmaster wheel:

    ''Kazunori Yamauchi talked to GTPlanet about the wheel giving some interesting insights. Firstly, Yamauchi makes note that this wheel will be ‘Direct Drive’ – meaning that the motor shaft is directly linked to the wheel itself without the use of belts and gears.''

    That one from Copenhagen in the original post. I think I remember that sign, and if memory serves me, it says the same thing in Danish. It's a joke, a pun if you will.
    And I'm pretty sure the same applies for the electrolux add. I think you can be pretty sure that they knew what they were writting, and the "alternate meaning" of the chosen phrase, was not an accident
