BBC launches Welsh to English web translation tool

BBC Wales has developed a computer programme that enables English translations for users of Welsh language websites.

The programme, Vocab, is available free of charge to Welsh-language websites. When users hold the cursor over a word, its translation appears.

A new version of Vocab, which is shortly to be made available, will offer different levels according to users’ reading ability in Welsh. The programme was developed by the BBC Wales’ New Media department.
