Some handful cities in Switzerland are officially bilingual, those where tradionatially the population has spoken both french and german, these are Biel/Bienne, Fribourg, Sierre and Murten, from largest to smallest.

Therefore all signs are in both languages depending on the one which has more speakers one language or the other is placed before or after.

Taken from the Spanish motorways thread... in this area, Algeciras is written always in Spanish and Arabic (not only there but every sign pointing Algeciras)

This sign may be an linguistic issue for someone coming from Hungary or Czech Republic.

If that's true, someone needs to fix the graphic part of the sign.
