Translating English to Welsh translation services are becoming increasingly popular as the Welsh economy continues to grow. In 2008, Welsh was even used at a meeting of the EU’s Council of Ministers for the first time in history.
Even though Welsh and English are related languages, translating English to Welsh is fairly challenging because of major grammatical differences between the two languages.
In Wales, English and Welsh have equal status, so road signs are typically in both English and Welsh. Often, however, the English to Welsh translations do not go especially well. When Swansea council tried to translate an English road sign reading “No entry for heavy goods vehicles. Residential site only” it came out in Welsh as “I am not in the office at the moment. Please send any work to be translated“. This error was not noticed until after the sign went up.

– Welsh is natively spoken in Wales, the United Kingdom.
– It is a beautiful language that often baffles English speakers with its unusual grammar and phonology.
– Although Welsh people also speak English besides Welsh, they are more comfortable expressing themselves and communicating in Welsh.
– Welsh is characterised by a number of sounds that do not appear in other European languages, such as voiceless lateral fricatives and voiceless nasal consonants. To make matters even more confusing for the untrained, the canonical word order in Welsh is a verb, subject, and then an object.
