German to Swedish translations [PRO]
Medical: Health Care / mentally challenged people
German term or phrase: This is a care facility, selling and begging is not welcome.
I have been asked to write this sentence in as many languages as possible. The facility (for mentally challenged people) in question has problems with people selling and begging, and these people come from many countries in Europe, so they would like to put a sign on the front door with this text in as many languages as possible. The facility is located in Finland.
It should be nicely phrased, and the translation can be free and idiomatic; the point is that there is no idea to sell and beg at this house, since the people that live there are retarded, and have no money.

Vårdhem - försäljning och tiggeri undanbedes

Det låter lite 30-tal. Idag skulle vi väl säga "Försäljning och tiggeri förbjudet".

Dagcenter? Vårdinrättning? Beror på vad det är.

"Nasare och bettlare undanbedes" ger skön 1800-talskänsla...
