Chinese Translations








A year or so ago I wrote a post about Chinese translations and now I see that it's time for another.  But this time, a sign is worth a thousand words.  :-)  

My cousin (Hi, Bel!) sent me the following pictures.  The Chinese made a great effort to translate their signs into English for the Olympics, and my hat's off to them. Honestly--because I'd hate to imagine how I'd translate Chinese.  

But these pictures are guaranteed to bring a smile.  Enjoy!

these were great! I had received a post before the olympics on chinese signs, but had not seen these. My family enjoyed the laugh this morning! Thx!

15 yrs ago, I was living in Japan with an American missionary family. We saw signs like this ALL the time! Thanks for the reminder, you can't help but smile when reading them!

I just love wine, but not sure I want to share it with a Bear! Think I'll remain stateside for now. Clyde

These were funny. Oh boy, makes me careful about using online translation tools for my stuff.
