Note that the source is a press release from a translation agency Sep 24, 2010

"Students can win an American Express gift card by translating a story of a foreign language translation goof into the language of their choice."


The "story of a foreign language translation goof" has been taken from someone's blog and can be viewed on this page.

"The winner of the $100 American Express gift certificate will be chosen by a random drawing of qualified translations."


"To Enter:
Visit our contest page and post your translation in the comments section of that page."


Brilliant. Just brilliant.

[EDIT to ask mods: what's happened to the method of displaying quotes on this site? They used to appear in white boxes, which were much easier to distinguish.]

Ah, I see. I had used HTML < blockquote > < /blockquote > tags as mentioned in the post form instead of BBcode tags, which are generated by the system.
