Classic Road sign error - the problems of dual languages

I heard about this story on BBC radio 4, then found a picture of it on BBC News website

I sometimes need translations at work and we always struggle with agencies getting it mostly right. But in this example, the welsh on the sign reads:

"I am not in the office at the moment. Please send any work to be translated"

Lesson to be learnt - always get translations double-checked
