Although this does not relate directly to computers, it is appropriate to mention where one can find Irish language translators.


If you need a translator, you can find a trained and qualified one on the Foras na Gaeilge website. Just click on the following link: “Aistritheoirí Creidiúnaithe don Earnáil Phoiblí”.


If what you need is localisation, i.e. the transformation of a website, self-service kiosk or computer application into the Irish language, then just contact the experts at Dúrud Teoranta at the following address:

LibreOffice - The Choice for Irish

We recommend it to anyone who is writing in Irish do download and use the free computer application called LibreOffice. This is an excellent wordprocessor that hosts a spellchecker and thesaurus, for example. One can make PDFs from documents easily as well.

In LibreOffice, it is possible to open MS Word documents, make changes, and save again as a MS Word document, if required.

An Foclóir Beag (Dictionary)

An Foclóir Beag, the Irish/Irish dictionay, is available on line. It offers more than the print version; for example, one can see verbs and adjectives in all their forms.
