South Korean Task Force Aims To Standardise Menu Translations

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Inaccurate menu translations can be amusing for foreign diners, not so much for officials of South Korea who set up a task force to tackle some of the crazier English, like the menu item six times.

It's a pork dish with aged kimchi. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
