Poorly translated Star Wars III
« on: March 23, 2006, 12:27:37 pm »
This is what you get when you hire a chinese person to put english subtitles when he tries to translate word for word. This site shows screenshots of a chinese dubbed Star Wars when it came out in theatres, the subtitles are meant for english-speaking people. A few words translate to some swearing so be advised.

I think this is the funniest. He's supposed to be saying "NOOOOOOOO!!"



Another thing you may notice why the word "f***" is used because originaly it's supposed to mean "to do," "doing," and "did," but to them how they interpret it is the most naughtiest word it could mean. And they dont do it on purpose either. ::)

I found out about it a while ago, and I found it better in motion. The pics don't do it justice.

It's liek the (crap) MMO, Silk Road. Terrible translations, such as "Many Of Heroes Unleash Incrediility power of Immensley Doom!"
"Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone elses opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation." - Oscar Wilde

Yes, I am aware of the irony.

This is what it says on the back of one of my Thai Donald Duck DVD:

An Officer and aduck

To obey the order is the most important mattor for every soidier. Can you image what it would be happened for a group of duck solder

The three liree duck jointed with his uncle, Duck, to defend their home land, Unfortunately, the ducks didn't defeat their enemy but destroyed their own amp and then......

I still can't figure out if those six dots in the end mean "Buy the DVD to find out!" or "I'll finish this sentence after lunch".
