'Chinglish' Photos and Shenzhen's Efforts to Tidy Chinese-English Translation

Shenzhen Engages Public in English Translation Efforts

A recent France24 culture article featured a number of humorous 'Chinglish' translations for public signs.

A new project in the Cantonese mega-border-city, Shenzhen, focuses on tapping the public to spot signs with flawed translations and submit alternatives. The submissions will be looked over by a team of pro translators and a prize will be awarded to winning participants.

The prize is free English classes!
