A Funny Road Sign Message Lost in Translation

I am out of the office at the moment
How it Got Lost in Translation The council staff in Swansea, Wales, UK wanted a
translation, so they emailed their translator. However, he was not
available, so an automatic response was triggered which read in Welsh: I am out of the office at the moment Unfortunately the council staff were not Welsh speaking themselves, and
believed that the automated response was the actual translation they
were seeking. There would be no story if they had the message checked,
but they didn't and another funny road sign resulted. The error was detected by Golwg, a famous Welsh-language magazine.
Dylan Iorwerth, the managing editor, said: 'We have been running pictures of
this kind over the past few months. 'It's good that people want to have
bilingual signs but, unfortunately, they don't make sure someone with a real
knowledge of Welsh checks the work through all the different stages.'
