    Great post! I went over to signspotting.com, and have to admit I spent a good hour cracking up in front of the monitor...
    I tackled the issue of poor translations in a blog post of my own, and if you're interested in reading how the issue applies to business marketing, take a look at http://translation-blog.trustedtranslations.com/investing-in-professional-translation-can-save-you-big-time-2009-07-21.html.
    Take care!
