Ydach chi wedi ceisio troi’r cyfrifiadur ymlaen ac i ffwrdd?

From the BBC:

A whole glossary for the IT-generation of Welsh-speakers has been incorporated in a new database launched by the Welsh Language Board (WLB).

Technological advances are reflected in laptop (coliadur), download (llwytho i lawr) or even cookies (briwsion) being included in the online dictionary.

For those still stuck, there is also “Ydach chi wedi ceisio troi’r cyfrifiadur ymlaen ac i ffwrdd?”, which is Welsh for “Have you tried turning it off and on?”

Nos da.

    My Welsh uncle instructed me to attempt to spit out my teeth and then I would be speaking Welsh correctly. I never did get it.

    YAY for the IT Crowd reference.

    But, like Chirac, I’m going to storm out because you are using a language that I don’t like… or whatever his pointless self serving reason was… politicians… pah.

    Ah Mary, if you came to Wales we’d have you talking like a native in no time at all I’m sure :-)
