JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Something always gets lost in translation, but usually not an entire city.
“Jerusalem. There is no such city!” the Jerusalem municipality said in the English-language version of a sightseeing brochure it had published originally in Hebrew.
The correct translation: “Jerusalem. There is no city like it!”
Carrying a photograph of the brochure, Israel’s Maariv newspaper said Wednesday tens of thousands of flyers had been distributed before city hall realized its mistake.

Wow, think of all the mistakes that might possibly be in the Bible due to translation errors 😉
