Monday Mistake: Fried Beef with Wikipedia!

Ever thought of quenching your thirst for knowledge at a Chinese restaurant? Did the owners come up with an innovative food establishment where knowledge seekers can access Wikipedia for free while they eat?

Most likely, the writer used Google Translate while creating the menu.

Mistranslations can cause giant and expensive problems. While this humorous typo probably won’t cause heartburn, in 2009 the bank HSBC had to spend $10 million on a rebranding campaign after their slogan “assume nothing” was mistranslated into “do nothing” in various countries around the world.

The moral of this story is to make sure you have a trusty proofreader. Ginger can do the trick for all your editing needs – whether menus or food descriptions.

Add Ginger to your fried beef and avoid the taste of web pages in your mouth!

    Needed to send you that bit of word to help give thanks as before just for the awesome techniques you have provided in this article. It has been really tremendously open-handed with people like you to convey unreservedly what many people could possibly have distributed as an electronic book in making some profit on their own, particularly considering that you might have done it in case you desired. The tactics as well acted to become a great way to be sure that other individuals have a similar zeal just as my very own to grasp a great deal more with regard to this matter. I think there are millions of more enjoyable situations in the future for many who examine your website.
