Papal Visit Philippines 2015 Special: The ATM with Latin Instructions

 

This is a post, part of a series, to commemorate the Pope’s visit to the Philippines on January 15-19 2015.

 

Latin may be a dead language, but it is still the official language of the Holy See. This is probably why an ATM in the Vatican City has Latin instructions.

Insertio scidulam quaeso ut faciundam cognoscas rationem. Google translates it as “I ask you to do so by way of insertion of a card”. What it really means is “Insert your card for the account to be recognized.”
