This paper describes how international standards, particularly ISO 704, have been adopted for use in term formation and standardization in the Welsh language. It discusses some additional factors that have also influenced methods of term formation in Welsh, such as Welsh morphosyntactic peculiarities and the sociolinguistic environment in Wales. The hope, in explaining the Welsh situation, is that this will provide a useful case study for other language communities.
