Years ago I was in a pub in Cantebury near the cathedral one morning and as it was quiet I got into conversation with the barman...it got round, for some reason, to foreigners not really grasping English. He produced the instructions for the assembly of a cabinet for a Japanese electric organ. There was an exploded diagram with numerous arrows pointing to different spots, each clearly marked ' Fuck here' :) :) :)

Just search for the threads he started ....at your own risk :)

That’s what you get when you use on-line translation instead of humans.
You won’t find stupid, machine errors on the multi-lingual signs at car parks in the centre of Canterbury, I can assure you.
Indeed, some of the original English had to be corrected first!

The English is clear enough to lorry drivers - but the Welsh reads "I am not in the office at the moment. Send any work to be translated." When officials asked for the Welsh translation of a road sign, they thought the reply was what they needed.

Blame the machine for this one

Cyclists were left confused by a bilingual road sign telling them they had problems with an inflamed bladder.
The "cyclists dismount" sign between Penarth and Cardiff became "llid y bledren dymchwelyd" in Welsh - literally "bladder inflammation upset" (or tip or overturn).

The Vale of Glamorgan Council said new signs were being made.

It is possible that an online translation led to confusion between cyclists and cystitis.

IWM caption : Pilot Officer Kennedy of No. 47 Squadron RAF Detachment inspects the damage to his Vickers Wellesley, K7715 'KU-H', at Agordat, Eritrea, after he was attacked by two Fiat CR 42s while on a bombing sortie over Keren on 25 March 1941. His air gunner, Sergeant German, was mortally wounded and the port wing was set on fire. Kennedy executed a vertical dive to put out the flames and returned to the Detachment's base at Agordat, where he crashed on landing.
