Fáilte - Welcome
Welcome to scriobh.ie.
This site summarises the most useful computer and internet resources that relate to the writing of the Irish language. It is not about literature, but something that points to other sites where dictionaries, spellcheckers, and other pertinent resources can be found. It is an attempt to organise the information out there.
Many new resources have been added in this arena over the last ten years or so. Yet, they are not generally known, even amongst fluent speakers, so it is hoped that this site will help spread the message to everyone.
By its nature, much of what is contained on this site is valid for all common computer systems. Where this is not the case, it is mentioned.
There are three versions of this site: in Irish; in simple Irish; and in English (this version). The various versions are not necessarily the same, as people’s perspectives on the matter are different depending on whether they know Irish or not. The Irish version is the most comprehensive and should be used if possible.
- The Caighdeán Oifigiúil Athbhreithnithe (Revised Official Standard) has been published and is now available here.
- There is a new add-on available for Firefox that can be used to replace vowels that lack fada signs with ones that do, for people writing Irish on the web. More details at the bottom of the following page.
