Professional Direct Welsh Transcription and Translation Service from Audio or Video Files

We can provide a direct translation from any Welsh audio or video file into English.

The linguist will listen to the Welsh speech on the audio or video file and will provide a direct written translation into English much in the same way as an interpreter would interpret what he or she hears verbally.

Our Welsh translators and transcriptionists can include speaker labels and time codes, depending on your requirement.

The quality and speed of output will depend on the clarity of the source media file, so if you’re starting from scratch, please obtain the best quality recording possible.

WHILE YOU’RE HERE... SOME QUITE INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT THE Welsh LANGUAGE

Welsh is a member of the Brittonic branch of the Celtic languages. It is spoken natively in Wales, by some in England, and in Y Wladfa (the Welsh colony in Chubut Province, Argentina). Historically, it has also been known in English as "Cambrian", "Cambric" and "Cymric". The United Kingdom Census 2011 recorded that the percentage of all people aged three and over living in Wales who could speak Welsh had decreased from 20.8% to 19% as compared to 2001. Despite an increase in the overall size of the Welsh population, this meant that the number of Welsh speakers in Wales dropped from 582,000 in 2001 to 562,000 in 2011. However, this figure was still much higher than 508,000 or 18.7% of people who said they could speak Welsh in 1991. According to the Welsh Language Use Survey 2013-15, 24% of people aged three and over living in Wales were able to speak Welsh. The Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011 gave the Welsh language official status in Wales, making it the only language that is de jure official in any part of the United Kingdom, English being de facto official.
