Borders are interesting. A border is where the sovereignty of a certain jurisdiction ends, and, at the same time, it is also where that of another one begins. Furthermore, the use of language is also a key component to sovereignty, and, by simple inference, it stops right at the border too. Therefore, a border is a place where language and power meet. As a result, signs around a border area are usually bilingual or even multilingual, necessitating adequate translation.
