Instructions

1. When you translate from "Welsh to English" using "Whole word" mode, the lookup engine attempts to undo any mutations before looking up the word. It also recognizes and explains most conjugated verb forms.

2. When using "Partial word" mode, you can specify the following special characters:

^
Matches the beginning of the line (if at the start)
$
Matches the end of the line (if at the end)
*
Matches 0 or more letters.
[letters]
Matches only those letters contained within the braces
Thus, in "Partial word" mode, you can find all the words that begin with 'c' or 'g' and end with 'i' by entering "^[cg]*i$".

3. If you select "Attempt translations", then the lookup engine will suggest possible ways to translate the exact form of the word that was entered. This option is only valid when translating from Welsh to English in "Whole word" mode.
