Creating online content in Welsh is becoming easier every day

Blogging

Popular blogging services like Wordpress and Drupal provide the infrastructure needed to create websites and blogs in Welsh. These offer themes that are tailored to Welsh - you can see more examples on the website meddal.com.

If you have a Twitter account you can also blog in Welsh on Ffrwti.com. Maybe you don’t have a blog but want to publish something longer than a tweet or want to publish news from your organisation. You can log in to Ffrwti with your Twitter login and publish to the Cymuned (Community) section.

You can get plenty of ideas and examples of Welsh blogs on blogiadur.com or on hedyn.net.

Hedyn.net also has Welsh podcasts.

Community Journalism

The Centre for Community Journalism creates resources to help learn skills, build confidence to enable anyone to create and share more news within their communities through the medium of Welsh using digital and social media.

Wicipedia

If you have information or expertise to share you can contribute articles in Welsh on Wicipedia Cymraeg.

Spellcheck

When you write content in Welsh, remember that the Cysill Online spelling and grammar checkers are free and very useful.

Programming and Coding

The Language Technologies Unit at Bangor University's Canolfan Bedwyr provides a range of material including resources and translation technologies. The team is also developing a speech corpus for the Welsh language called GALLU.

The Welsh National Language Technologies Portal provides these resources as 'building blocks', open and free for Welsh coding clubs, hackers, enthusiastic volunteers, software companies (local and international) and researchers to create finished digital products in Welsh.

Raspberry Pi Cymraeg is a Welsh language resource to teach people how to code.

Technology Forum

Hacio'r Iaith is a community of both professional and amateur enthusiasts who discuss how technology is relevant to Welsh, how the language is used and investigate what the possibilities are.
