E-gyhoeddwr (E-publisher)

During the summer of 2011 the Welsh Book Council commissioned the Language Technologies Unit to undertake research in Welsh language e-publishing. The Welsh Book Council published this report in October 2011, and at their request the LTU also prepared detailed technical guidelines for publishing in EPUB format.

Subsequently, the Welsh Language Board awarded the LTU a small grant to create a web-based application to aid publishers prepare Welsh language texts in EPub format.The website checks your text for common problems with creating Welsh language e-books, for example problems with accents on ŵ, Ŵ, ŷ and Ŷ before converting everything to an E-Pub file.  Users can download the completed E-Pub files and publish as they wish.
