Hilarious translations are often in the bathroom


After the quirky signage at the bathroom sink;

I had to wander into the men’s bathroom to see what Kirk was laughing about.
Here I found some very civilized signage.


My attempt at translating this is more like:
A small step forward, a civilized big step


This should read more like:
Press closely civilized, approach for convenience

I greatly admire the art of skilled translation, though in these moments, it’s great entertainment when a literal translation is apparent.
