The Contemporary Welsh of Wales
This unique language is a great source of pride and an element of identity for the people living in Wales regardless of their level of mastery of the Welsh language. The Welsh call their language Cymraeg. About one-fifth of the Welsh people still speak this Celtic language today. The Welsh youth organisation Urdd Gobaith Cymru is particularly committed to its preservation. There are radio and television stations that broadcast in the Welsh language. Bilingual road signs are not uncommon. The language is taught in schools and books, newspapers, and even Internet pages are published in Welsh. And according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the longest name for a place is also in the Welsh language It is written: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. That translates to "Saint Mary’s Church in the hollow of the white hazel near the rapid whirlpool and the Church of Saint Tysilio of the red cave". Welsh is also spoken outside of Wales. Emigrants have established the language in far off places such as an Argentinian province in Patagonia. We provide professional translations into and from Welsh.

Welsh is written phonetically and in accordance with certain rules. Because each letter is pronounced, it proves to be one of the easiest languages in all of Europe to read. Although the language has hardly changed since Roman times, it adapted to modern life. It is related to Cornish and Breton but not very close to the Goidelic languages. Speakers of Welsh and Gaelic, for example, cannot understand each other. The Welsh literary tradition is centuries old. The tales of Mabinogion is a very special literary work of art written in the Welsh language. The exact time when it was written is unknown mostly because it was originally passed down orally and only documented in writing at a much later time. The main reason for the survival of the Welsh language through the turns of history was the translation of the Bible into Welsh during the Renaissance.
