Can You Name the Brands Behind These 20 Translated Logos?

By Attila Nagy on at

The logo of a multinational brand needs to be recognisable in any language, which is why so much time and effort goes into developing a strong design. But it's still fun to see what Subway's logo looks like in Chinese, or what Pizza Hut looks like in Farsi.

I collected 20 of these amazing "domesticated" logos from multinational companies below. Can you guess what languages they're in and that companies they belong to? Take a guess, and then scroll to the bottom to find out the correct answer -- no cheating. And feel free to add more fine examples in the comments!
