Great translator vacation photo

Summer always brings great opportunities for travel, especially in our internationally-minded industry. And along with those travels come some great vacation photos from colleagues! Here (reprinted with Jiri’s permission) is one that made me laugh out loud: former ATA President Jiri Stejskal having trouble getting any work done during his vacation to the Czech Republic, because…

In his blog entries about this photo, Jiri reports that the sign (at Karlstejn Castle near Prague) actually says Interpreting Prohibited in the original Czech, and is posted at tourist attractions so that non-Czech speakers have to book a (more expensive) tour for foreigners rather than having someone interpret the Czech tour for them. Anyone else out there with some amusing translation-themed vacation photos?
