Japanese are also horrible at English, though not as bad as Chinese. Generally in Japanese the message comes through, but the sentence structure is horribly mangled x.x
There's a joke in China about a Chinese person who travels to some European country, get's into an argument with a local, and starts yelling f*** me :P

Do you mean that Chinese people are worse at English than Japanese people or do you mean that they are worse at Chinese language than English? Because if it's the former, then I wouldn't want to play a video game nor watch an anime that was made in China and translated to English >.<. I mean, many older SNES and PS1 RPGs from Japan had horrible English localizations, so imagine how bad they would be if they were from China. >.<


Regarding China failing at doing stuff, I think for electronics and stuff like that it's more because they always try to save as much money as possible when producing stuff, so they can sell it for cheaper, but the result is that it breaks faster often.

Nowadays there are professional translators that do it and most translations are great quality tho.

It means: mommy, that one, that one, that one
Hmm that's weird. In russian "die" means "give". It's an interesting coincidence how both of these words will both work in the context. Also: I guess this is a necrobump? :P

DJ Omnimaga

Does the English word give translate to die in Russian? :P

"Дай" is pronounced " die" and is the command form of "give". Alot of the time lazy russian internet users use the Latin alphabet instead of the Cyrillic one. So yea... :P The russian word for "die" would be pronounced "umerie", long u and long I. (Once again here I give the command form of the verb)

DJ Omnimaga

I have absolutely no clue about what you mean, sorry >.< (specifically what is command, there)

O well nvm then. But the command is the form of a verb that is used when giving commands. (It's technically called "imperative") So for ex in Latin (idk French) "audio lupum" would be "I hear the wolf" but audi lupum" would be me ordering you to listen to the wolf.
