Each time I kill a tank, my Russian crew member yells "Gato!" now I'm pretty sure that means cat in Spanish. Did Wargaming outsource the Russian crew members to Mexico????!!!!

It's "Готов" or gatov in English. It can mean ready or prepared or finished in Russian as in he's finished (aka dead tank).

You mean in Latin letter, not Cyrillic not in English. In English means finished or dead.

You guys sure about it???

 

My gardener uses that word a lot when he comes to cut my lawn. He always talks about the neighbor's "gato". He's a cool guy, but the last thing I want is my Russian tanks manned by Mexicans yelling "Gato" at tanks.

Yes. Many languages have words that sound similar but have different meanings. Slut in swedish means end and slutstation is the end of the line for a train or bus. Gift as a german word means poison so don't go into any german gift shops. :trollface:

Several years ago Seattle named their new transit service South Lake Union Trolley.  http://ridetheslut.com/

One of the classic examples was that Chevy had to rename their Nova model to sell it in Spanish speaking countries. "No va" in Spanish means "It won't go".  :)
