My son came home from school with a made-in-China prize -a plastic ruler/template for drawing shapes etc.
Here is what the package said, under some Chinese print (no, these are not typos):
Matters Needing Attention
– This product was easy to bruning, aloof the high temperature, please. Because maybe beget any danger and the product s definition distort.
– The product have some keenness part, so need to prevent bruise.
– The product only befit measure and study, unable to do other definition’s mensure.
– Needed the paterfamilias accompany, if the children haven’t 3 years.
Do you think if I run the above thru Google Translate it would come out in English?September 18, 2016 3:04 am at 3:04 am #1183672
Only if you first run it through the French, Esperanto, and Uzbekistani translations.September 18, 2016 3:44 am at 3:44 am #1183673
I wonder what would happen if you ran it back through Translate to Chinese.September 18, 2016 3:54 am at 3:54 am #1183674
I think I can translate:
This product is susceptible to burning. Avoid high temperatures, please. Because maybe you will be endangered and the product’s definition will be distorted.
The product has sharp edges. Do not cut yourself.
The product is only intended for measuring and studying. Other uses (such as art, I’m guessing) might not produce good results.
If the child is less than three years old, he or she will need to be supervised by the male head of the household.September 18, 2016 5:40 am at 5:40 am #1183675
I don’t think Google Translate can do Chinglish to English.September 18, 2016 5:48 am at 5:48 am #1183676
RebYidd- what a relief- And I thought I had to go hire some mob family boss (paterfamilias) to supervise my child’s play!
Anyone care to contribute their funny mis-translations?September 18, 2016 2:28 pm at 2:28 pm #1183677
