Somehow, I don’t think they’ll be successful…

I just received an announcement from a wannabe translation portal:


I have some doubt they’ll be able to attract too many customers. It’s very clear they have not found too many proofreaders, yet. But then, what do I know: I’m no “writting” specialist, myself Winking smile.


  1. Hi - So sad and yet so true!
    I found lots of things like this when doing some canvassing over the week end. In fact it inspired my translator friend to write a tongue-in-cheek article. You should check it out - very funny!

    Retweet needed here I think :)

  2. PS Blog called "Jest for fun" -

  3. hahaha! Good luck fellows! It reminds me of some funny emails I get in ...machine-translated Greek, which really make my day!

  4. Sadly, I have seen a few language providers make similar mistakes on their websites. Makes me wonder.

  5. Sad, sad. And funny, in a sad way. :) Thanks for sharing, Riccardo.

  6. I can still hear the thud the impression of that website should have made with prospective customers... :)
