For years, Chinese signs have been a fantastic source of comedy.
Entire sites have been created around the humorous translations used in signs, and while some are just plain stupid, others have become Internet sensations, pulling in millions of viewers.
That may all come to an end soon in Shanghai. Officials in the city have assembled a team of volunteers who will check signs, and report incorrect translations to the authorities. Those signs will then have to be removed and/or corrected.
The increase in poorly spelled signs can be blamed on poor translation software and poor user input. In fact, incorrect use of translation software can even result in really stupid signs like this one.
Thankfully, the Chinese are not alone in the world of stupid signage, as you can see on this Welsh sign.
