Update for Welsh
Any update on the possibility of Welsh please?
Hi, Unfortunately Welsh is not among the languages that we can add any time soon.
I'll check with my colleague Sahra where do we stand on this and get back to you.
Supiii thanks so much zoran! :) Fingers crooooossed ♡
Hi nihlie, good news is that we have the mini stories but we should work on the audio files to get them ready for launch. So realistically it can not be expected very soon. we would also need a grammar guide in order to add a new language. will you be able to help with that? you can send an email to me at sahra @ lingq . com to discuss how we can prepare Welsh.
Thank you for coming back to me so quickly! :)
Great news with the mini stories, a pity though that the audio and grammer guide are required too. I was hoping to get the language unlocked so I wouldn't need to "spam" my word translations from self-made lessons like from lingo newydd into Esperanto. :(
Using another language also means changing the dictionary version for each word. :(
May I ask, have you tried to get in touch with the Welsh government? Maybe they would allow you to use their grammer guide? They really seem keen to encourage Welsh learners!
If only recordings are missing (maybe the grammar guide is not a must??) I'd be happy to give financial support to maybe find a Welsh tutor to record them for us or something similar. Not sure how this usually works - I am not a Welsh speaker so I shouldn't record anything myself! :D
How can you possibly ask for an ETA for Welsh when LingQ simply doesn't know?
Virtually all content on LingQ is created by users. Users that dedicate their own precious time to creating content for LingQ (for which they may earn points which can be converted into money - though the earnings are low and the payment system complicated.)
As LingQ does not pay professional translators and audio creators, the content received - particularly audio content - is often not up to standard and needs to be recorded again.
Pretty please is endearing at least it's a nice way to ask :-)
