Thread: Anyone translate this, please

  1. #1

    Red face Anyone translate this, please

    This is part of an obituary to one of our most-loved-of-poster's wife's ancestors. It was in a Welsh newspaper. Can a KS please translate it ('cos the on-line translation is nonsense)?: " Yr hyn a allodd hon hi a'i gwnaeth."

    Your prize will be to translate the whole of the obit!

    Not if you are talking about translating the rest of it, "She will not be able to"

    I was just pointing out that you still need some help.
