Chiglish - Take Care, Fall Into Water Carefully

I know the English standard in China is not that good, but I never expect these types of English to be shown to the public in China. We called this 'Chinglish'. I think it will just make people laugh especially to those who can read the Chinese words.

I think I can easily get a job in China as a 'Chinese To English Translator', or just teaching English.

Take care, fall into water carefully!!!

Problem is you cannot easily get a job as a Chinese to English translator in China because the reality is that business Chinglish persists because of the unwillingness of so many companies to pay anything much at all to clean things up.
