Further strange and amusing user instructions

This instruction sheet included with my laptop stand was almost nonsensical. Highly amusing though. Somebody who put this together must have been convinced that it made sense. The wonderful world of translation.

Would you take your laptop stand to a meadow?

This photo of the packaging that my laptop stand came in is of the visual suggestions of where it can be used. I can’t imagine taking it to a meadow or any other sort of field but perhaps some would. We are in general proficient in our first language. Some of us struggle to learn a second. Others find it relatively easy to speak a number of them. Sometimes translation can go wrong and end up either being amusing or offensive when a second language speaker translates or writes something aimed at a first language reader to read.

Translation – this should have been double checked perhaps

We are in general proficient in our first language. Some of us struggle to learn a second. Others find it relatively easy to speak a number of them. Sometimes translation can go wrong and end up either being amusing or offensive when a second language speaker translates or writes something aimed at a first language reader to read. This was part of the packaging of a desktop laptop stand that I bought.
