In our early years of translation for Hispanics, a flyer went out that mentioned manhole covers. In Spanish it read "covers for mans holes."

Most languages are more precise (and more correct) than English...have someone proofread translations.

Were you working in Chicago's "Boy's Town," the Castro, or Providence at the time?
