Editorial.

I've recently received several mails, mainly by the notorious outraged Chinese reader and his main slogan "Show some respect to our country, we will run you all over very soon", questioning the authenticity of the shown Chinglish photographs.

I can't change his attitude besides with what I am doing with this website, so I won't bother, but questioning the quality of my exhibits is a different matter.

It is precisely because pictures that have been manipulated are so readily available on the internet that I adhere to a strict policy of only displaying photos on Chinglish.de which have been taken by photographers that I know personally and who also reveal the location where the photo has been taken.
I frequently turn down many images for display - in spite of how hilarious they are - precisely because I cannot guarantee their authenticity.

I kindly ask readers who are suspicious to refrain from questioning the authenticity of the pictures shown.

All Chinglish on Chinglish.de is real and will continue to be.

Best,

olr.


Thanks, Jochen, for the pharmacy in Macao!

im from china too. But I agree with you.
Some department should make a correct to their chinglish. And I think some pieces of chinglish are creative, english should be improved by other language custome. There is one day, we gathered, speaking one language, but without Babel tower collapse..
