Professional translation from and into Scottish Gaelic*
Brochures, websites, letters… pretty much any form of the written word. This specifically includes Software Localization, which is a particular area of expertise offered by Akerbeltz.

Small Translations
Just have a sentence, motto or short passage you would like translated? Not a problem, the Small Translation Offer caters precisely for this kind of request and includes a translation, a transcription into the International Phonetic Alphabet, a transcription into a traditional font and a voice recording of your translation.

Proofreading
Have your translation checked for spelling errors, grammar or bad idiom.

Linguistic Consultancy
Pronunciation guides for dictionaries or phrasebooks, how to avoid common pitfalls in bilingual signage and packaging.

Pronunciation Training
Instruction in how to produce the sounds of Scottish Gaelic correctly. This can be on a 1-1 basis or in small groups. Ideal for groups or individuals learning Gaelic, choirs. If you prefer to study on your own, you may like to consider my book on this topic, the culmination of more than 15 years of work in this area.

Please remember, irrespective of whether you use Akerbeltz or some other professional translator, Google Translate is at best a tool that will translate the gist of something into another language. Whether destined for paper, cyberspace, a billboard or your skin, it does not produce reliable Scottish Gaelic translations.
