silly translations


found in the package of an 8-port desktop network switch:



There are many silly translations… like the cool Matsushita CD-Drive driver that I used in 1995. Everytime it was loaded the text “Matsushita Electlic” was displayed as a copyright notice…the other example is when a company tried to sell “high-power-WLAN solution”…and they translated it to “hohe Macht WLAN Lösung”… which simply means “great force WLAN solution”…may the 4th be with you!
