I watch a lot of foreign language films, and read a lot of translated literature and I always try to imagine what I’m missing out on by not reading or taking in media in it’s original language.

In film, are there some significant mistranslations that has led non-native speakers of the language to interpret something different from the movie?

Thanks!

    LMAO, that is quite funny. I mean it’s an accurate translation, but completely messes up the context.

        Oh, I didn’t check the math, but that’s even funnier.
