Language technology for Welsh as a less-resourced language [REF2021]

Impact Summary for the General Public

Research undertaken by Bangor University’s Language Technologies Unit (LTU) in the field of language technology for Welsh as a less-resourced language has enabled the development of on-line resources (proofing tools, dictionary apps, text to speech, speech recognition and machine translation), transforming the use of Welsh in digital environments and impacting daily lives across Wales. Research-led development of resources has helped to promote Welsh as a modern, forward-looking language, as well as enhancing practice in industry and informing government policy. Impact has extended beyond Wales, influencing the digital language equality roadmap internationally and informing the practice of global concerns.
