In the shower of an upmarket hotel. Defend the mattress at all costs!


On a snack package with dried peas. They don’t even bother to consult a dictionary, google translate or something before they put this on thousands of packages.


In a menu at a restaurant aimed at tourists.

And here are some more highlights I found in restaurant menus:

  • Noodle-Soap

  • Plane rice

  • Palace of explosive cabbage

  • Rape soup

  • Unrestrained lorer

  • Papaya milkshake, please

I hereby solemnly award China the Guinness Book of Records title
“Country with Worst English Translations”.

This really shows how European languages and Chinese languages are quite incompatible with each other.
