Japanglish is the kind of humorous English language usually seen around Japan characterized by a poor translation from Japanese to English. The results of those literal translations can be very funny. Japanglish is also known as Engrish.

Miguel Michán has sent me this great Japanglish example.

Can somebody decipher this Japanglish text?

    Could it work better the other way around, i.e. from English to Japanese? I know that http://www.translationparty.com/ gives pretty wacky results, at times.. 😀

    They must be using Google translate. Not a good idea.

    Couldn’t they have hired one of the loads of Gaijin already in Japan to provide a REAL translation?

    Engrish makes Japan even more fantastical from a exotic stand point.
