“Where birds don’t lay eggs”: How media in Asia translated “shithole countries” bit.ly/2EAlAE7

Media around the world soon picked up on the remark, but not always in English. In Asia, outlets struggled to translate “shithole countries.” Here are some of their attempts (links in Chinese, Korean, and Japanese):

  • Haiwainet, a news portal of China’s state newspaper People’s Daily, used lan guo, or 烂国, which means “countries that suck.”

  • Taiwan’s Central News Agency tried niao bu sheng dan de guo jia, or 鳥不生蛋的國家, meaning “countries where birds don’t lay eggs.”

  • South Korean news portal joins.com went with 거지소굴, pronounced “go-ji-so-gul,” meaning “beggars’ haunts.”

  • The Japanese daily Sankei opted for 便所のように汚い国, or “Benjo no yō ni kitanai kuni,” meaning “countries that are dirty like toilets.”
