Forum rules


The purpose of this forum is to provide a place for people who are interested in the Irish language and various Celtic languages to discuss them, to practice them, and to share information about them, particularly (but not exclusively) in the context of traditional music and culture.

This is not a "translation forum," per se, though translation requests may occasionally be honored at the discretion of the moderators. If you're seeking a one-time translation for something like a tattoo, engraving, wedding vow, or other such purpose, we strongly recommend that you visit our friends at ILF: http://irishlearner.awyr.com

I got that one a few weeks ago. Hilarious! The Irish is absolutely terrible! I guess the Nigerians discovered Google "trashlate."

That's what we call it at IGTF. It's horrifying the number of people come to us for "confirmation" of a tattoo "translation" they got from there (made more horrifying by the fact that, for every person who comes to us for "confirmation," there're probably two or three who just go ahead with the tattoo without asking).
