Hopefully, one day it will produce near to perfect translation!

The Scots Gaelic language is widely spoken. More than 85,000 thousand people around the world speak this language. For the rest who cannot speak the Scots Gaelic Language, translating Scots Gaelic to English could be quite difficult. Many websites provide services to translate Scots Gaelic for a few dollars.
