In my first year in NL, visiting Cologne, I carefully noted the name of the street where I parked "Einbahnstrasse" :oops: :oops:

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".

So that was what went up under the English version which barred lorries from a road near a supermarket.
