"parcio" is (obviously) "parking". "20 munud" is (duh) "20 minutes" (MUNUD and MINUTE are pronounced very similarly). "am" is one of those connecting words. "dimond", however, I can't figure out and it isn't in my online dictionary.

parcio am dimond 20 munud
You Can Park Here for 20 Minutes

Close?

Re:

That was why I couldn't find it! "dimond" is actually "dim ond" (two words). *sigh* You're trying to make me work for these translations, aren't you? ;-)

It'd definitely only one word on the sign!

Re:

Well, when I look up "only" in the English-Welsh dictionary, it lists it as "dim ond". I won't argue the point, because you saw the sign and I didn't.

I think the sign is the one with the typo.

Of course, if it were easy, I could have fun showing off ...
