    "Beside it is a translation in Italian and Czech."

    The second language is in fact Slovenian. Disputed area is now a part of Italy and Slovenia, Czech Republic is 600km away from that spot and Czech have never been spoken in that area, certainly not to such extent to be considered as relevant for a check point on this locations.
