Listen to the Chinese: branding is bollocks

This lot can’t even decide if they’re going to transliterate their trademark as Lepai or Lepy (I hope there’s somewhere where they call it Leper):

But it’s a brilliant little amp, none of your Apple shite.

Föcked Translation (413): I posted to a light-hearted blog called Fucked Translation over on Blogger from 2007 to 2016, when I was often in Barcelona. Its original subtitle was "What happens when Spanish institutions and businesses give translation contracts to relatives or to some guy in a bar who once went to London and only charges 0.05€/word." I never actually did much Spanish-English translation (most of my work is from Dutch, French and German) but I was intrigued and amused by the hubristic Spanish belief, then common, that nepotism and quality went hand in hand, and by the nemeses that inevitably followed.
