There are at least two new reasons for Welsh speakers and learners to be cheerful which have emerged over the last few weeks…..
Firstly, Google has just added Welsh to the list of language on its translate service. This is a real boost to those of us who need to work bilingually on the web, either to track developments, or to improve fluency in a second language.
Meanwhile, the Language Technologies Unit at Bangor University, has released free online version of Cysill their spelling and grammar checker for the Welsh language. This is another really useful tool, which has been making homework so much easier to Welsh learners for several years. Now it is available to all of us, which is great.
