21 People Who Got Lost In Translation

It quite easy to get lost in translation. In countries with many popular tourist destinations, English is often the people’s adopted Lingua franca, but things are often translated too literally and not idiomatically enough resulting in inaccurate and hilarious translations.

Of course, not everyone can speak English fluently and accurately, but a business owner translating the name of their shop or a poem via Google Translate almost always translates to bizarre hilarity.

While we are not sure whether what happened in these photos is the result of honest mistakes, dodgy software or DIY translation, it doesn’t really matter. There 21 gems unearthed by BoredPanda are proof of the delightfully spectacular collisions between tongues and cultures.
