I have seen a number of mistakes made by Spanish wineries in their English language texts.

Here is my blogpost that might be amusing and/or helpful

Thanks for that, it really cheered me up. Pay peanuts, get a monkey with Google.

I'm particularly enjoying the naughtily-worded link I can't mention here.

Glad you liked my blogpost.

The link is a very amusing, albeit naughtily named, site.

How do translators cope with naughty words which are much more common in Spanish than in English even in polite circles.
