        The current version is expiring in TWO DAYS time. I am getting worried.
        Having used it for quite a while, this is now a MUST HAVE.
        (I have bought the full version - but no Welsh there?)

        I tried to get the beta but it won't allow be access to that forum. Could you please add this to your available languages. My job also requires that I speak/type I Welsh so it is very important

        I agree that this would be very useful. Multi lingual keyboard has got one and it is very good.

        Please consider adding the Welsh language. There are many of us speak it as a first language, even in Patagonia!

        Hi - if you want some help with Welsh get in touch; I have a background in language technology and have built n-grams for Welsh in the past. The Welsh Assembly Record (equivalent to the UK Parliament's Hansard) is a good starting corpus, and my former employers at Bangor University also do work in corpus linguistics for Welsh. I also used to work with the guy that developed LiteratIM, previously mentioned.

        As others have pointed out, there are more potential users of Welsh Swiftkey than many other languages, and resources are available, so please do consider this seriously! Diolch!

        There is
        now a Welsh language keyboard application (Literatim) which is very
        good, but nowhere near SwiftKey.

        Any chance you guys could work with Literatim - maybe even just to use
        their dictionary?

        Yes please. There are more Welsh users than some of the other languages that have already been released :)

        It would help me. But I notice Swiftkey is quite good at learning from my previous texts.
