Chinglish

Recommended Posts

Back in the '80s we used to get a laugh at work when someone would bring in a product manual for something made in Japan (or even correspondence from our Japanese support office).   We called it "Jinglish."

 

Well, the Chinese have taken over manufacturing and we now have "Chinglish"  or maybe translation brought to you by robot.  This if from a flashlight I got as a door prize this weakened [sic].

At least it wasn't written in Chinese. 

I received an unassembled Laser cutter direct from China. Assembly instructions were all in chinese. Took 9 hours but got it done with only a few parts left over.:(

You've worked your way through to page 27 of the manual to item 44 and it says " insert woven filter material between sub assemblies L and Y." Oh, crap. That wasn't packing stuff?

Learned long ago (having to assemble stuff), never throw anything away until it's completely assembled.

I think my favorite is

"At the same time depressed left and right side buttons remove back the rear cover ,  according to "+""-" polarity loaded three 1.5V AAA batteries, the the rear cover can be fitted according to the original direction."

 

Just so many errors.

Topic for another thread, but I've found an excellent finishing use for the Kraft paper Amazon uses for packing. Now, if only those inflated plastic bubbles could be reused. :huh:

Kraft paper makes a good rubbing material to get out nubbies and "finish the finish"    I keep some in my touch up kit for smoothing and evening out things like overspray.
