Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The sender: HR manager

Audience: Recipients of email for a large manufacturing facility in Mexico

Context: The subject line was "Meeting Today: Nova". Being in Mexico, the audience understood this to mean "No va", which is a command in Spanish that means "Don't go". The sender meant to communicate that the subject of today's meeting was project Nova, but the audience understood it quite differently. No one showed up. 

There were no drastic consequences, other than a missed opportunity to have a meeting. The sender really ought to have considered the language differences.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
