Chinglish

On my way home from Toastmasters, I spotted this sign in the subway. A perfect example of Chinglish. Or Engrish, whichever you prefer. Chinglish happens when the languages don’t quite translate properly. There are hundreds of examples around of this, and I’m going to try to catch the most humorous ones. It’s with my camera phone so it’s not so clear. It’s from Shanghai’s Public Transportation Authority.

It says, “If you are stolen, call the police at once.”
