Everywhere in the world, we see mistranslated signs. On Fridays, we share a few that made us laugh out loud.

  • Hotel, Vienna: “In case of fire, do your utmost to alarm the hotel porter.”
  • Airline ticket office, Copenhagen: “We take your bags and send them in all directions.”
  • Zoo, Budapest: “Please do not feed the animals. If you have any suitable food, give it to the guard on duty.”
  • Hotel lobby, Bucharest: “The lift is being fixed for the next day. During that time we regret that you will be unbearable.”
  • Cemetery, Italy: “Persons are prohibited from picking flowers from any but their own graves.”
