These Translation Failures Are Just So Bad But Can Give You A Good Giggle

Traveling non-English speaking countries, you must have seen that most of their signs translated into English. It’s obviously a clever move since English is considered the global language. We all know that not everyone is good enough at a foreign language not to get lost at translations. In this case, translation tools are a great need. But still, sometimes, you should not put too much belief in those tools. Because instead of translating your words correctly as you wanted to mean in the first place, they can turn your English translations into hilarious fails, making any reader feel so confused.

We have rounded up some of the funniest translation fails that people spotted while traveling. Scroll down to give them a look, and prepare for a good chuckle.

#15. “A buffet sign reads “ميت بول” (“MeatBall”) transliterated into Arabic, with its translation as “Paul is Dead” in English, a literal translation of the text!
