Spell Check Wouldn’t Have Helped!

Latvian Tourism mistranslates English tourism campaignLatvian tourist bosses were left a little red faced when they mistranslated their latest tourist campaign .The £500,000 promotion for the city of Riga was aimed at English speaking travellers and would have worked well had someone just friggin proof read the copy before it went to the printers. Oh dear, the posters and leaflets read RIGA CITY: EASY TO GO, HARD TO LIVE! instead of RIGA CITY: EASY TO GO, HARD TO LEAVE! That’s pretty much a fail.
