New Translation Site

The European Union has sponsored a new language translation site that boasts of having the best translations yet available in such software, including things like the ability to go from Basque to Slovak or Catalan to Welsh. Interestingly, there does not seem to be any facility from going into or out of any of the Gaelic tongues.

    1. No, Rob, Welsh is a Celtic tongue, but it is from the p-Celtic branch, not the q-Celtic branch that the Gaelic languages are from. Here is the Wiki page on Gaelic.

  3. Thanks.

    I had always assumed that "celtic" and "gaelic" were synonymous.

    I see now that are are not.

    So I guess I didn't waste the day.
