In Wales, some road workers needed to print a sign in both English and Welsh.

Unfortunately the workers didn’t have access to a Welsh-speaking person on the job site. Instead, they emailed someone and asked for the translation. The person was out of the office, and their email client sent back an auto-reply. The very intelligent men thought this was the translation they needed, and printed it on the sign.

The Welsh text on the sign reads: “”I am not in the office at the moment. Please send any work to be translated.”
