A little Welsh language Help please gents
« on: February 17, 2008, 09:07:26 pm »
Hope this is ok to post in here... if not please delete kick me next time at DV

My daughter is doing a project at school and we are trying to get the following translated

"The Lady of the Lake"

Tried the english to welsh translation sites but not sure they are correct as its wrong when you translate it back from welsh to english

Cheers

Translation sites are too literal. They look at the exact words in order, rather than the meaning. You can't trust them.
