Chinese restaurant called TRANSLATE SERVER ERROR

I'm not sure what Chinese string this restaurateur fed to the translation software used to to generate the giant sign hanging over the entrance, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't: TRANSLATE SERVER ERROR. Ah, the special problems of translations into other alphabets.


(Thanks, Mark!)

What probably happened here is that when they entered the characters for translation and hit the translate button there was an issue with the translation software. So the resulting error message was 'TRANSLATE SERVER ERROR' instead of the requested translation - classic.
