A cute story from the world of diplomacy. I do love that the French President delivers speeches and makes statements in English instead of relying on a translator. But even the most skilled language user can sometimes trip up as shown here in the article I Can’t Stop Listening to the French President Calling the Australian Prime Minister’s Wife ‘Delicious’ https://www.thecut.com/2018/05/french-president-calls-australian-prime-minister-wife-delicious.html?utm_medium=s1&utm_source=fb&utm_campaign=nym
All of us have seen examples of translation fails. Here are some restaurant ones, have fun: https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/why-bad-menu-translations-fails
I apologize but I do not know who came up with this and deserves credit.
