Cysgliad i’r Mac News Wales:

Welsh language tools for Apple Mac OS X are now available to download free of charge, thanks to cooperation between the Welsh Language Board and the Language Technologies Unit at Canolfan Bedwyr, Bangor University.

This is the first time that Apple Mac OS X users have been able to use a comprehensive set of spelling and grammar checkers for Welsh, together with a suite of bilingual Welsh / English dictionaries….

…Delyth Prys, leader of the Language Technologies Unit at Canolfan Bedwyr, said: "Previously,
Cysgliad was only available for Microsoft Windows but we received numerous requests for a version to run on Apple Mac OS X computers. The use of Apple Mac OS X for home and professional use has grown in recent years. Graphic designers, publishers and photographers in particular prefer to use Apple Mac OS X, and provision of Welsh language tools is essential for them to check the quality of their Welsh language output."
