UK National Park Officials Left Embarrassed After Inviting Visitors to ‘Sex Area’ in Facebook Post

The Facebook account of Snowdonia National Park, a spectacular glacial region located in northwest Wales, was trying to advertise a tourist spot when its translation tool landed it in a spot of bother.

Facebook’s translation software left officials at Snowdonia National Park in Wales red-faced after mistranslating some Welsh into English in a Facebook post that mentioned the area’s mysterious “sex area.”

Unfortunately (for some), it had nothing to do with an orgy invitation or “dogging” site – the post in Welsh asked social media users if they intended “to visit Ogwen Valley sometime.” However, Facebook’s automatic translation tool translated the Welsh word “rhyw” (some) incorrectly, causing the gaffe.
