Apparently a Swansea council needed a road sign translated in Welsh’. An email was sent to the translator who had his “out of office” email reply activated, as he was out for the day.
This wasn’t known by the council staff who, happy with the fast reply from the translator, set about to print the Welsh text onto the road sign: I’m not in the office at the moment. Send any work to be translated.

Unfortunately they only found out after erecting the sign and Welsh readers spotted the mistake….


Then this is a very straight forward sign indeed!
