Seen here with Canolfan Bedwyr staff.The Minister for Education and Skills, Leighton Andrews, was the first to have the Termiadur Addysg app downloaded to his mobile phone at the Urdd Eisteddfod this year.

He will visited Bangor University stand at the Eisteddfod on Friday 6 June, where the staff of the Language Technologies Unit, Canolfan Bedwyr, showed him how the new app works. The app is a version of the Termiadur Addysg terminology dictionary, which is also available on the http://www.termiaduraddysg.org/ website. This is the dictionary of standardized terms for Welsh and English terms for schools and colleges of further education in Wales, and both the web and the app versions are available free of charge.

The Minister said that he appreciated having the app version on his phone and tablet. “It’s very important to have attractive and useful Welsh language resources in the new media. I hope that children and their parents, teachers and translators will use the app. I would like to see this new technology used much more to promote the Welsh language. Congratulations once again to the Language Technologies Unit at Bangor University’s canolfan Bedwyr for its excellent work.”

The app will also be available for download from the Termiadur Addysg website.
