Yes, I made a typo there. I admittedly have trouble with double and single consonants in Italian. I also would NEVER provide my services as an English to Italian translator, as while I am sufficiently fluent in the language, I am quite aware that my writing skills are not up to the task. That said, yes... you will find awful errors when finding translations from any language TO any language. In fact, I believe if you dig deep into this blog, you will find mention of some awful mistakes I have seen by people here in the States. However, the point of the post was simply that English is a much more global and common language, and resources available in Italy to use native speakers are not in short supply. Yet, the mistakes found on a daily basis, everywhere, and even by large corporations, are rarely limited to simple misspelling. They are more often so poorly translated as o make no sense whatever. That said, take the light hearted post for what it is.. Good fun.

hehehe... I can't begin to tell you how many times people have told me thy speak perfect English, then once I began to speak to them in English, thy said they couldn't understand a word I was saying. The excuse is invariably that they speak "ENGLISH", not "AMERICAN". Each time I switch to a british accent without saying a word, and they continue to insist that they speak ENGLISH, not AMERICAN. I try to explain that it is not a matter of dialect, but one of a few words and spellings that change (Z/Zed, Trunk/Boot, Diapers/Nappies, Stroller/Pushchair, Elevator/Lift, Apartment/Flat, Color/Colour, Theatre/Theater, etc.), but they refuse to believe me :-). Oh well, pride is pride :-)

LOL "He speaks American, not English." That line was so funny. I've heard that as a joke from my boyfriend. Not knowing he was joking, I said, "what are you talking about? It's the same language, except there are only some differences in pronunciation and some different words for what we call things." Example subway/metro/underground. .-= Catherine´s last blog ..What's Cooking Wednesday: Spinach with Lemon =-.
