Default Help Samsung With Their Korenglish

Samsung's English text on EmoDio.com and EmoDio media player is pretty comical and sometimes incredibly far off. So maybe we can have some laughs and help out Samsung at the same time. So this thread is where we can make suggestions for proper translations. PS: I mean no offense by "Korenglish", I'm certain is extremely difficult going from an Asian language to a Latin based language - Samsung is doing a great job regardless.

Submit a suggestion in this format:

(this one really cracked me up)

Where: EmoDio Media Player - Install Screen
Samsung Says: "EmoDio is run at once"
Suggested Translation: "Run program after installation"

Screenshot:

In one of the new games, the "Help" section is hard to understand also.

I get a kick out of the firmware update function in SMS. I click on Update Firmware, and SMS replies with a little window and the words "Updates is not available now."

I appreciate Enzo Ten's sensitivity toward Samsung's need to go from an Asian language to a latin based language -- which can't be easy -- but I would have thought they would have some proof readers well versed enough in English to catch these little mistakes. I think Samsung would find them embarrassing if they were aware of them.

Well, if we can actually help them with these embarassing mistakes, that would be great . . .

Would be great if anyone would have any useful translation skills... not just snide remarks.

sigh. as a korean, i'm ashamed of korean companies' incapability of finding adequate translators. or maybe they're just too lazy to? as a teen immigrant i could do a better job than those doing it now. ever visited a korean stationary store where they sell cute notebooks and pencil cases and things? ever see the english captions on them? they make me want to cry and throw things across the room.

Well, emodio.com is down for maintenance... yet again.
Only this time they are "apologized to your inconvenience" instead of apologizing for it.

It's because of things like these that I'm transfering to transcultural communication in the winter semester =/
Kinda reminds me of this movie I watched where there was the line "he looks like a Bible salesman" and someone had translated it as "he looks like Bibli the sailor man"...
