The Welsh Language Commissioner’s office is offering free proofreading up to 1000 words to voluntary organisations over the year.
UPDATE: Following exceptional uptake of the free translation offer, from 1 June they will switch back to offering their superb proofreading service – 1000 words over the year for free.
During this period, we know that many voluntary sector organisations are having to respond quickly to an ever-changing situation. We know many of you are keen to communicate bilingually but may need some help to prepare bilingual messages at short notice.
The Welsh Language Commissioner’s Hybu team offer a proofreading service to the voluntary sector in Wales. They can proofread up to 1000 words over a year, free of charge. Just send the work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
They can also provide our usual support and advice to you in planning your Welsh language use – the team is still working from home.
Get in touch with them to learn about other support available, for example the Welsh Government’s new Helo Blod scheme.
