Example of poor translation

A recent article out of Malaysia pokes fun at some poor translations. Of course some of the most popular product name issues are covered.

Like the Chevy Nova product release in Mexico which was a terrible mistake since “No va” means doesn’t go. But my favorite miscue from this article was this sign.

UPDATE: Since this post was written the article has since evaporated from the news source’s site. We just recently released an e-book on Humor in translation which can be downloaded here.
