Gaelic Policy - Poileasaidh Gàidhlig

Here at WIL we recognise that the Gaelic language is an integral part of Scotland's heritage, identity and culture.

Gaelic is embedded in our world-famous landscape and cities with the likes of Loch Ness (Loch Nis), Culloden (Cùil Lodair), Glenfinnan (Gleann Fhionnainn), Glasgow (Glaschu) and Dundee (Dùn Dè) whose names in English remain close to their original Gaelic.

We are proud of Gaelic's place in Scotland's cultural heritage and want it to be at the centre of our brand.

Our Gaelic Language Plan acknowledges this interest from our site visitors, as well as the importance of ensuring the long term sustainability of the Gaelic language. Our plan outlines a core number of aims focusing on key areas of our operation such as corporate identity, making our website bilingual, and communication with the public.


- To increase the visibility of Gaelic by

  •  Making page headers and categories bilingual in English and Gaelic.
  •  Giving readers information on how they can learn Gaelic.
  •  Making contact forms bilingual in English and Gaelic.
  • Giving team members of WIL learning opportunities to improve their Gaelic.


By 2020, we aim to:

  •  Make our website headers bilingual.
  •  Create bilingual contact forms.
