Categories transport The multi-lingual rhino poster Post author By Daniel Post date Mon 3 September 2012 7 Comments on The multi-lingual rhino poster I quite like these ads: From what I’ve heard, the campaign was originally quite successful, but started to wear off after a few months, so I guess they need to keep revamping it to continue to get the message across.

Here are the 25 languages on the poster: * Chinese * Dutch * Filipino * French * German * Greek * Spanish * Japanese * As far as I can tell, Gibberish in Braille * Afrikaans * Croatian * Klingon * Arabic * Italian * Thai * Vietnamese * Samoan * Macedonian (the “J” was the giveaway) * Korean * Turkish * Malay * Hindi * Serbian * Russian * English (courtesy of Crikey’s language blog, Fully (sic): http://blogs.crikey.com.au/fullysic/2012/08/29/competition-name-the-languages-on-the-yarra-trams-posters/ Loading... Out of curiosity- how did you hear “it was quiet successful, but began to wear off” I’m just interested to how this is measured- is Yarra Trams looking at number of causalities or something? Loading... @Craig, basically, yes. Loading... I could identify about 19 of those without looking anything up. Klingon ??????
