To Perasma


Those passing the new shop “To Perasma” might be attracted by the curious translations on the shop’s signs. The results are the fault of the sign maker, a Volos based operation, we hear. We are not sure exactly what dishes or concept the shopkeeper wanted to announce but “Species of Pedestal” and “Species of Kiosk” don’t come across as particularly appetizing.

What is written is probably the consequence of a GoogleTranslate muff somewhere during the creation process. In the “translation by algorithm” from a variety of languages with differing alphabets into English something got lost (and gained) along the way.

Whatever – I hope that the owners don’t change anything. The sign gives the shop a unique character and the shop has become the talk of the town. It is a perfect promotional eye-catcher, the type of thing that social media loves (for a few seconds before moving on).

Good luck to the owners
