COTRI Director Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Georg Arlt’s Latest Article “Getting Lost As a Tourist Will Get Easier In Shanghai Soon” published on his Forbes Blog on Saturday, August 27, 2016.
Professor Arlt’s article discusses the recent initiative of Road Administration Bureau in Shanghai to open a public discussion regarding the option of removing English road names on local traffic signboards. The Bureau’s representatives question the necessity of having traffic signs written in English supporting that omitting them would be an opportunity to enlarge the Chinese characters and make them more recognisable to drivers. In this case, the bilingual signs would be kept in some specific areas, such as tourist spots, the Central Business District and some transport hubs.
This development is then contextualised to different examples in Japan, Belgium and Canada.
