Bad Spanish to English translations are so fun!. I enjoy feeling smug, knowing that I seldom make such embarrassing mistakes any more. Seldom, but not never.
We English speakers are not immune to Google Translate abuse. There are some hilarious translations from English to Spanish. I always wonder, before printing large expensive public signs, why don’t the authors just ask a native speaker?
The author of this sign thought they were politely asking people to turn off the showers, instead they instructed people to “turn around in a circle far away from the heavy rain”.
Following these instructions, you would “wash your hands, not fall down, and notice that the iron (as in the heavy metal) was arrogant”.
How many thousands of these tags do you think they printed?
This smoke free facility is promoting the “ease of setting tobacco free.”
Google Translate is not your friend.
