Having just completely replaced my bathroom and installed new bath, toilet,
wash-basin, taps, shower tray/cubicle, Shower mixer, etc. I've had to read
through quite a few installation manuals.
Most of the products are (of course) manufactured abroad despite being
chosen from UK supplier's brochures.
What has astonished me is that still, in this day and age, most of the
manuals have hilariously poor English translations.
"Overweight products could not be put on toilet, and sit on toilet forcibly
at a sudden is not workable."
"Put force on toilet to close is prohibided."
"Chemical cleaning agent is unavailable. And don't clean the seat by rigid
It provides for endless amusement, and rarely causes confusion because it is
obvious what they are trying to get at. Nonetheless it is surprising that in
this day and age of rapid communication, manufacturers who are wanting to
sell their products in the UK do not have their manuals translated by
someone who at least understands the language of the country they are
wanting to export to! At the very least they should send a copy of their
manuals to the UK suppliers so that they can correct and amend them!
