Mistranslations - Avengers

The Best Superhero Movie has the Worst Description

Now how on earth did we get this kind of translation? Lord only knows what language this was translated from. From beginning to end this reads as though a person copied several lines of beatnik poetry, interspersed that with a review of the film, and then changed every other word by using a thesaurus.

What we find interesting is that someone spent the time to translate a Wikipedia page into some other language and then translated it back into English. Maybe there are some other languages that got thrown into this blender of mistranslations.

What do you think? Did this come from an Eastern European language, an Asiatic language, or possibly an African language?

Do you have a mistranslation too good to hold onto? Send us your mistranslation and we’ll feature it on our website.
