Microsoft Translator adds Welsh: ‘Great step forward’ for bilingual National Assembly for Wales

Microsoft Translator adds Welsh to a growing list of languages it supports, developed by the bilingual National Assembly for Wales in partnership with Microsoft. Users can translate to and from Welsh using Microsoft products such as Office, Bing Translator as well as in the Bing Translator applications for Windows Phone and Windows

A blog post on the Assembly website states, “The introduction of Welsh in Microsoft Translator is a great step forward in bilingual working and should help facilitate the use of machine translation to allow more people to communicate bilingually.”

The language system allows more people to communicate bilingually, saves time and reduces costs for professional translators – but is not intended to replace professional translation for formal communication and documents. It will, however, provide another tool to extend bilingual communication where it might not otherwise have been possible.
