I’m working on a Directory at the moment which covers he whole of the UK, coding went fine but once I put the data in I discovered a problem, a problem with Wales.

It turns out if a page contains a list of Welsh town names Google want to translate it into English, and while that maybe helpful in some circumstances its not to good when you are trying to find a service in that welsh town.

So how do you stop Google offering to translate a page?
