Hi Mavericker,
What terms would you like to have translated? It might also help if you explained what you plan to do with your Welsh terms. Who is your target audience, for example?

Hi Mavericker,

There are two approaches that might prove helpful here, depending on how urgent the translation is.

First, if you are just looking for word/phrases to be translated, then the Kudoz system here is the right one, not the forums. I'm not sure how many people answer in the Welsh/English combo, but you'll probably get better results than in the straight forums.

Second, a directory search of freelancers using Welsh/English as the languages pulls up a number of hits. Disregarding the agencies for now, there are still many individual freelancers whom you could contact to arrange for a translation. This costs money, of course, but this is a translator's portal and if you need a job done...

Good luck!

Welsh kids and teens? Or if your target audience is US kids, are you going to supply a glossary along with your comic book?
