18 Translation Fails That Will Make You Roll in the Aisles

 Why bother translating something into English if you know for a fact that you can't do it well? That's a reasonable question to ask, but some people strongly disagree, it appears. English is the lingua franka, after all. While it often may be painful to read spelling mistakes and broken English, we must also appreciate just how hilarious the results of these typos can be!
Take these 18 signs and disclaimers we've collected for you, for example. These translation fails contain statements and typos so ridiculous and outrageous it's actually very funny! A big thank you to their creators who didn't let their lack of language proficiency stop them and made us all smile today.
