Misstranslations

Every now and then, you come around an article or funny strip about misstranslations. Some of them are really funny, although they make you think whether really the person who did the job was the best they could find. Other, on the other hand, most of them tell you about the different make up of the languages, both source and target. So here, in this link you will find a few. On a more personal note, it should make you think about the pitfalls you find as you translate and to be aware of them, the importance of keeping your working languages fresh and your general knowledge up-to-date. (Apart from actually learning the languages and just rely on any machine translator!)
