꿀꿀 != Oink

It is obvious that words have different sounds in different languages, but did you know that “oink,oink” is completely unrecognisable as a pig sound to a lot of the world. This lead me to wonder if some sort of international animal noise conversion services is required, or some international standards body to sort this out.

In korean a pig noise is꿀꿀 (R: Kul Kul ), and a cow goes 음매 (R: eermae) not “moo” , someone definitely needs to sort this out. I call for a symposium on the matter !!!
