Welsh Windows XP
Welsh XP enables you to view desktop commands and menus, as well as Internet Explorer, in Welsh. However unlike Welsh Office 2003, it is not possible to easily switch languages once Welsh XP is installed onto a PC. For this reason Welsh XP is available on request for staff with a dedicated work computer.
Installing Welsh XP on to your work PC (Staff)
University staff wishing to use Welsh XP should first of all consider if any colleagues will need access to their PC. Staff who share a PC should only install Welsh XP if all users of that machine are able to speak Welsh.
To have Welsh Windows installed on your PC please contact your Local Computing Representative in your School or Directorate. They will then arrange a suitable time to come and install it on your machine.
Please note that once installed, Welsh Windows, can only be removed by re-imaging your machine.
Installing Welsh XP onto privately owned PCs
Staff or students wishing to install Welsh XP on their home PC or laptop should contact the Welsh Language Board to download the software or request a copy of the CD (both of which are free of charge).
Please note that this option should not be used for networked PCs on campus.
