Instead of “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” Kubrick used “Was du heute kannst besorgen, das verschiebe nicht auf morgen,” which translates to “Never put off til tomorrow what may be done today.”
Kubrick shot additional versions of the typewriter inserts for use in various countries.

This recollection differs from an interview Nicholson gave nearly thirty years earlier.
'Yeah, people loved that line. I remember Stanley wanted a funny line there. It was the most horrific scene in the movie, and he wanted to break it up. So I came up with that line. It holds a lot of essence of what we were trying to do.'
