Star Wars: Backstroke of the West?

Backstroke of the West is a direct english translation of the Chinese interpretation of the English version of Star Wars. How people find this stuff out is beyond me but a lot of the translations are hilarious.

-The beginning scroll is mistranslated and it was spelled out for them.
-Jedi Council translated from English to Chinese back to English is "The Presbyterian Church"!
-May the force be with you = Ratio tile, the wish power are together with you (So Obi-Wan means Ratio Tile?)
-The best is the translation of Anakin/Darth Vader at the end of ROTS yelling, "NOOOOOOOO", it is ridiculously translated as "Do not want."

Some of them get really bizarre. See this madness for your self.
