We had a cake decorator do something in a similar fashion a few years ago. My mother is of Italian heritage and is the first member of her family to be born here in the US. My father special ordered a cake for her with a birthday greeting in Italian. The decorator saw the message and thought it was supposed to be in Spanish but just spelled incorrectly. He took the liberty of "correcting" it to Spanish and then spelled her name wrong.
Oh well, we tried.

Related Side Note: I was blocked by work from downloading a Naval Postgraduate School master's thesis, from the official school website, on a wargaming engine because it related to "gaming" when my job was to evaluate the operational wargame derived from that thesis (among other resources). The CIO backed up the filter's decision.
