What is VOCAB? / Beth yw VOCAB?

  • 14 Ionawr 2016

VOCAB is a tool that enables you to get instant translations of Welsh words without having to leave the BBC Cymru Fyw website.

The service is provided by the Language Technologies Unit at Bangor University and includes around 60,000 entries from the 'Geiriadur Bangor' dictionary database.

[Mae VOCAB yn eich galluogi i weld cyfieithiadau Saesneg o eiriau ac ymadroddion ar wefan BBC Cymru Fyw.

Mae'r gwasanaeth yn cael ei ddarparu gan Uned Technolegau Iaith, Prifysgol Bangor. Mae'n defnyddio cronfa ddata 'Geiriadur Bangor' sy'n cynnwys tua 60,000 o gofnodion.]

You will also be able to follow a link through to the Welsh Terminology Portal for more information.

[Wedi i chi droi Vocab ymlaen, bydd geiriau unigol ac ymadroddion yn cael eu tanlinellu. Ar gyfrifiadur, gallwch hofran dros y geiriau i agor blwch fydd yn rhoi'r cyfieithiad i chi. Ar dabledi a ffonau symudol, tapiwch ar y gair er mwyn agor y blwch.

Bydd hefyd linc i ddiffiniad llawn o'r gair ar y Porth Termau.]

Why are some words and phrases not underlined? / Pam nad oes rhai geiriau wedi eu tanlinellu?

The BBC is working with the Language Technologies Unit at Bangor University to improve the performance of VOCAB across the Cymru Fyw website.

Currently, the tool works best on individual story pages. Please note that on some devices, it may not be possible to translate titles or headlines which are also links.

Please note that VOCAB is not available on the Cymru Fyw app.

[Mae'r BBC yn cydweithio'n agos â Uned Technolegau Iaith Prifysgol Bangor i wella ymddygiad VOCAB ar Cymru Fyw.

Ar hyn o bryd mae'r gwasanaeth yn gweithio orau ar straeon unigol. Ar rai dyfeisiau, efallai na fydd yn bosib cyfieithu penawdau a theitlau sydd hefyd yn ddolenni.

Nodwch nad yw VOCAB ar gael ar ap Cymru Fyw.]
