The English is clear enough to lorry drivers - but the Welsh reads "I am not in the office at the moment. Send any work to be translated.") However this is painted in the Welsh language.

I had no idea that Welsh, as a language, was still in common use.

I also didn't realize it was so dramatically different from English.

That is the thing about DP, we read and learn something new.

The Welsh Language has different roots than does the English language.

I am sure if you cared to research it you might be surprised at the differences.
