Lost in Translation

Oh, don't you just hate it when they tried to translate it from English to Malay and vice-versa?

Overheard from the news......

SCB's Priority Banking becomes Perbankan Keutamaan. Priority Banking is a proper noun and it does not need to be translated.

Taman Persiaran Sungai Kuala Belait becomes Persiaran Park Sungai Kuala Belait. So the news editor could not find any English word for persiaran?

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) becomes something that I could not understand.

Enough already!
