Bad Translations on Signs
by Rossana Samanamud
(São Paulo, Brazil)
I saw these ads during my trips and besides terrible translations, cultural aspects are also considered here.
- In a Brazilian shop:
"Please keep out of children" on a knife package.
- At a church confession room in a small city in Toledo, Spain:
"Confess your sin and pay to be healed"
- In a dressing room in a mall in Chile:
"If you don't fit, we do not exchange your pieces"
