英語で読む: Bad translations

Please go to the link http://eworldtranslations.com/translation/examples-of-bad-translations/ and see examples of some bad translations. You don’t have to understand everything. I hope that you will be able to have some fun with them (some are really funny!). Try to find some mistakes in the English version.

HOMEWORK
Think of the following questions and write an answer to one of them:
1. Have you ever seen a bad translation of a text into Japanese? Why was it so bad?
2. What is your opinion: why is it difficult to do a good translation?
3. Do you think that it is interesting to be a translator? Why (not)?
