Map of Europe – Chinese translation

Map of Europe - Chinese translation

Well, at least that’s what they *think* these countries are called. I wonder if google translate / google map did not exist when this map was created?

Unfortunately, only Chinese speaking people would understand that “very lucky soldiers” is *wrong* for Sweden (by the logic of other translations).

And why is Russia not translated to something like “goose screw”? (Again, only Chinese speaking people would understand this question)
