English Signs in a Foreign Land

Updated: Dec 21, 2020

If you've ever been abroad, you know translation isn't always the most accurate. Here are a few fun Korean-English translations I've found. Sometimes it's a direct translation, and sometimes.... well, English spelling is often a confusing thing, let's say.

How does one caution a floor? And what does a floor require cautioning from? "Caution. People will walk all over your face."

I believe they meant, "Watch your head."

Do not flush the toilet!? Eww!!

Ogd! The great and terrible! Honestly, I kind of want to write Ogd's story. He must feel so misunderstood.

Okay. This one is just too cute.

This one makes me laugh every time! I have only a vague idea of what they meant to say.

Last but not least, thank you Google translate.

If you've done some travelling and found interesting, strange, or cute translations, send them my way! I'd love to see what amusing English you've found and where.
