In 2008 a road sign was put up in Swansea which read “No entry for heavy goods vehicles. Residential site only”. Unfortunately the Welsh on the sign was the out of office message received from the translator “Nid wyf yn y swyddfa ar hyn o bryd. Anfonwch unrhyw waith i’w gyfieithu” which means – I’m not in the office at the moment. Send any work to be translated.
