Hi there,

I just found out that in the "Answer a Kudoz question" section you can choose the combination English to Welsh or vice versa and you get a couple of questions displayed.

Why so few? Well, this might be explained by the fact that if you attempt to ask a Kudoz question in these categories - as I just did. Welsh is not offered as an option.

May I strongly suggest that we rectify this oversight immediately! My Celtic ancestors are spinning in their barrows over this one.

Diolch yn fawr,

Berni

Welsh, like Breton, is in more languages Dec 5, 2003

I checked right away for Breton of course...But if you click on "more languages" you will find Welsh, and more languages.
However the link is not easy to find, I think.

Not easy... or impossible? Dec 5, 2003

Hi Florence,

If I click on "Ask a Kudoz Question" and then enter "English" as my source... I don't see this "More Languages" option you mention in the target box. At the bottom of the list there is the "ZZZ Other Languages" option, but that does not in turn open up to a further list.

What steps did you take to find Welsh?

Anyway, doesn't this smack of discrimination? Proz are normally very good about avoiding anything that smacks of favouritism on the langauge front.

Cheers,

Berni

The option is not in the box, it's on the left - written in green.
I just checked, there is indeed English to Welsh.
But I repeat that it's not easy to find!
