MS has teamed up with the Welsh Language Board, Microsoft Certified Partner Draig Technology Ltd and translation agency Cymen to offer Welsh Windows users a "Language Implementation pack" (LIP) for Windows XP and Office 2003.

The LIP can be had as a free downloadable addition to said products, and will allow "partners to deploy Welsh language versions of the technology for customers in the region who need to comply with local legislation mandating that employees are entitled to work in Welsh".

More info on this initiative can be found on the Welsh language enclave of Microsoft's website. ®
