Kimra Traduko kun Google

…de la Western Mail:

Welsh has joined Galician, Swahili and Yiddish among the 51 languages supported by Google’s translation service.

Teachers today welcomed the California-based internet firm’s decision as a “positive development” for the language.

In April there was an outcry when users of the service complained that it supported cross-translation between languages including Latvian and Maltese, but not Welsh.

Google, which was initially funded by Cardiff-born venture capitalist Michael Moritz, accounts for 90% of all searches in the UK.

Google says the new service will make it easier for Welsh-speaking users to find and view search results on foreign language web pages in their own language...
