Engrish is Real
The Engrish contained in the pages of this site are real and true examples of flawed English. To the best of our knowledge, none of the images have been doctored in any way (other than to lower the resolution of the images).
Engrish.com Uses Only Original Material
Please note that Engrish.com uses only original samples of Engrish either sent in by individuals for use on Engrish.com or collected personally by the webmaster. Though it may not be an original concept, Engrish.com was the first major site on the Internet to introduce Engrish to the world (the word “Engrish” was coined by Engrish.com). Beware of Engrish “copycat” sites out on the internet that have taken content directly from Engrish.com without the approval of the site’s content administrator. Unlike these sites, Engrish.com will never knowingly take any content from another website.
Take My Photo Down!
We respect your intellectual property rights. If you own any rights to images or works contained herein (and can provide us with proof of ownership) and would like Engrish.com to take a particular photograph off of the site, please write in to us and we will do our best to remedy the situation as soon as possible (by removing your photo if necessary). Please remember that this website is all in fun, and is not intended as a malicious attack on any person, group of people, company or product (see below).
No Offense Meant – Really!
Among the thousands of emails received by Engrish.com, there have been about one or two that have questioned the political correctness of the site. Obviously everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but I think that it is important to state here that Engrish.com was produced for entertainment purposes only – not to offend a particular race, people, or society. Anyone who has lived in Japan for an extended amount of time will tell you that Japanese corporations come up with some interesting and oftentimes funny English. The webmaster of this site lived in Japan for over 10 years and loves the people and culture. If anyone can point out anything in the site that is blatantly racist or otherwise uncool (and I agree with you), I will happily change the content of the site.
Thank you for your understanding!
