Funny translation of the week #22

Today we'll go to traffic school... if we don't get lost on our way! (http://spanish.gototrafficschool.com/howtosignup.cfm)

Gototrafficschool.com Spanish page

The whole document is interesting, but the first step on the list is the best:

1) Fence to the main page and flatten REGISTER later complete the registation form.

Apparently, many people are wanting to use the word "fence" in Spanish for miscellaneous uses. This time it becomes a verb!

Of course, what they wanted to say was "vaya", which is "go" in the imperative mode. But this serious misspelling totally changes this word's meaning!

As regards "flatten REGISTER", it is probably just a funny mistranslation for "press REGISTER", meaning "click on REGISTER"...

Funny translation of the week #21

Today we have a Spanish article on immigration found at http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/23310/la_inmigracin_en_utah.html

Spanish article on associatedcontent.com

As usual, I highlighted in yellow some very interesting bits that I will now translate for you:

The "scam" With The Immigratián In Utah

Just to set the tone, but it gets better...

Evén though Utah is located thousands of milles of the border, there are fences of 86,000 immigrants without docutments living in Utah

86,000 immigrants living on a fence? What kind of accomodation is this? Do they get to pay a rent?

Many people do not quite understand, exactly which is that is done the ICE or the "Immigartián and Rights of Customs Coercián".

Hardly surprising they don't understand I would say...

You may already be familiar with essential oils and know that jojoba oil is one of them. But here you get something completely unheard of, a brand new essential oil: the "joroba oil" ("hump oil").

From now on, dromedaries and (especially) camels of the world, beware! You are wanted!
