Lost in translation - this is the actual sign

('course unless you speak Welsh yourself it doesn't mean much! :) ) It actually says 'There is no one in the office at the moment. Please send any material for translation."

I can't tell you how amused that makes me... *G*

Thanks for posting the picture of the sign. Did you take it yourself?

Hi Anna

No - the photo was actually on the BBC site. This story seems to hve spread like wildfire. There's another one about a bilingual sign in Scotland - unfortunately it was a bit confusing since it was in English - and Welsh! Britain may be 'the United Kingdom' but we still have language problems! :)
