Computex 2007 – Lost In The Translation

Here are some some funny English signs we came across while touring Computex and Taipei. We’ll forgive them because English is not the main language of the country, but it’s still funny.


The the choice of enthusiasts worldwild. I’m sure enthusiasts really do go wild for the product.


We’re still trying to find their blog.


You can find the Mega Bank at the Mega Holdings Building. I guess that’s what you call the building if you can’t use the name Trump.


This company makes some fine chit. I’m sure they make the best fine chit in Taipei, maybe even the world.


We’re not exactly sure how Yoyo translate to Young & Open but the female clothing store did have a lot of young girls inside. However, we are not sure how open they were.


Inside the Young & Open store, you can find this really sheet T-shirt!


Please don’t ask us where we saw this sign.

      1. Holy “chit”! Seriously gave me a good chuckle. You almost have to read them twice. Well maybe I’m the only one.

  14. Yeah, that post had some fine chit in it!

    I don’t understand the Fine Chit company, do the buy find chit or sell fine chit? If the buy it, are they looking for vendors? I have some fine chit for them. 😆

  22. Almost everyone thinks that last picture is awesome. My favorite word of the day: Worldwild — definitely somewhere I want to live in.

  23. You need to tell us where that last one was… and it better not be the men’s bathroom!

  24. Mike Zak says:

    Engrish is one of my favorites.

  25. says:

    LOL the last one was jokes 😆

  26. Mason says:

    I like the fine chit one. those signs reminds me of the ones the chinese are removing to prepare for the 2008 olympics. One of the signs removed was for handicapped bathrooms that read “deformed people restroom” or something. 😯

  27. justinf says:

    Ah! the fine art of Engrish sign writing.
    love it. 😆 😆

    lots more examples on flickr:

  28. Ashxx says:

    Fine Chit… I need to start getting my chit from there!

  29. Sam says:

    There is actually an entire website devoted to the art of Engrish…

  30. chrisboo says:

    The last sign must have been inside a public bathroom, lol!

    1. If that sign were in a public place in America I’m sure people would find a reason to sue over it.

  31. Charles Lau says:
