Lost in Translation

I find a kind of perverse pleasure in finding typos. I really love to find them in books or published content. That being said, I know there are probably some typos some of you readers have found on this very blog– the idea kind of haunts me.

Anyways, here in China, it’s almost too easy. People stick their Chinese ads into Google Translate and print their menus/signs/shirts. Can you find all of the problems?

Chinese Menu typo

delicious…. also, what is Oden?


a bit unsafe

typos 2

a bit risque for the soft drink section

These are from the same menu… might want to check those section headings again.

And when you get your nails done, you want to stay in fashion.


The next few aren’t technically errors, but still look pretty funny.




this one is kind of cute

I hope you had as much fun finding them as I did!
