Jump to Comments

Sbwriel is back with a bang after a month off for website development (or plain laziness). This weeks Welsh Word of the Week is inspired by the BBC’s current top 5 most shared news stories. The story is as follows:

When officials asked for the Welsh translation of a road sign, they thought the reply was what they needed.

Unfortunately, the e-mail response to Swansea council said in Welsh: “I am not in the office at the moment. Send any work to be translated”.
