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 😉

Haha, awesome.. I love goofs like these. Or when Elders in a foreign mission say something completely opposite of what they intended. Good times…
P.S. You need to add a Sustain’d link to your posts! 😉
I had the Sustain’d link, but then I updated my WordPress version and I’m trying out a new theme…
