Chinglish Signs!

Welcome to “Chinglish Signs!” What is ‘Chinglish’ you say? It’s where Chinese and English meet, and most often times, fall flat on their faces. In almost every case, nearly without exception, no matter how big the event, how magnificent the landmark, the Chinese translators will very flippantly translate their native Chinese into English, often too directly and without consultation with a native speaker. Check out this Chinglish video for some other true gems. I seriously want to start a “Sign Translation Hotline,” where businesses can call me and for $1 I will translate what they are trying to express with their sign into correct English. I’d be so stinkin’ rich. But for now, we are stuck with theses signs, much to my, and hopefully your amusement.
