Welcome to this week’s Friday Funnies. These ones made us laugh out loud and reminded us why professional translators are so important. Without them, you get: 

  • Mountain Inn, Switzerland:  “Special today – No ice-cream.”
  • Hotel lobby, Moscow, across from a Russian Orthodox monastery: “You are welcome to visit the cemetery where famous Russian and Soviet composers, artists, and writers are buried daily except Thursday.”
  • Hotel, Yugoslavia: “The flattening of underwear with pleasure is the job of the chambermaid.”
  • Tourist agency, Czechoslovakia: “Take one of our horse-driven city tours. We guarantee no miscarriages.”

If you are ever lost in translation and need some help, please contact us at info@a-zworld.ca.
