The Cabinet Office has recently reviewed the need to translate material into Welsh to inform its discussions with the Welsh Language Board about its Welsh language policy.

Consideration is given to translating material into Welsh by the Cabinet Office and its non-departmental bodies when their activities in Wales involve direct dealings with the public. For example, the forms, publication and web pages associated with the recent campaign to encourage people to nominate ordinary people for honours were made available in Welsh.
