If you know the term "Chinglish", you know this is a must-have app.
It is commonly ungrammatical or nonsensical English in Chinese contexts. It is what you SHOULD NOT do when writing English. Meanwhile, it provides great entertainment value to those who know.
There are many places on the net where you can find Chinglish photos. There are groups of Chinese and native English speakers who are dedicated in documenting Chinglish instances.
This app is created to help people to document and collect Chinglish photos, both for entertainment and education purposes.
If you see a bad Chinglish translation, take a photo and upload it. We automatically put it on the map for people to see. You can browse photos uploaded by others.
All photos are tagged by their locations. Business owners and government officials should take notes. Go to the map and see if your signs or menus has become jokes on the net.
Show the app to your kids. Tell them what not to do when using English.
It is a free app, so enjoy.
