THE city will start the next phase of its campaign to eradicate Chinglish in public signs next month to ensure an intelligent linguistic landscape for the millions of visitors coming to town for the 2010 World Expo, officials said yesterday.

Student volunteers will be sent to check the translations in public places and a Website will be launched to collect complaints, the government’s Shanghai Language Work Committee said yesterday.

Head-scratching signs like « disabled lift » near elevators and « enter the mouth » on roads will be reported to the appropriate government department for revision.

« We need to exploit the students’ language skills, » said committee official Zhang Ripei. « Students usually have a good grasp of English, and they will be a good inspection force. »
