Translation errors that drive me nuts
« on: June 25, 2013, 03:00:02 PM »
I guess no one cares, but I need to get this out somehow.

  • "Paipu isu" is not Pipe Ice - Because of this, I got search results for drugs, not chairs.
  • "PWJ Needle? - It's actually Persuasion Needle (Because Persuasion = Pasuweijion...only in Japanese
  • "Musan" doesn't refer to the proletariat or any other kind of political class. It means "dispersing" or "formless". Musansha (person lacking property, as in landless, not formless) actually refers to proletarian though.
