5 Product Labels Hilariously Lost in Translation
Amy | On 09, Oct 2015
Start your day with a good laugh, because today we are going to share with you 5 product names that hilariously turn out to have quite unfortunate meanings in other languages. We are warning you, some of the words used are quite offensive.
Let’s get started…
The great famous latte, happens to mean “Erection” in Germany. So if you’re visiting Germany, you might want to avoid saying “Let’s go get a Latte”, perhaps sticking with beer which is a very popular drink in Germany would be better.
Sega changed the pronunciation of its brand to “See-ga”, which in Italian has two meanings. One meaning is, it’s a chainsaw or a saw, and its second meaning is “Masturbate” which is mostly used in central Italy. So now you know.
So folks, we hope this encourages you to take care when coming up with the name of your product/brand, as we can all see why.
Hit us up with a “Like” and if you enjoyed it, keep in mind that “Sharing is caring”.
