Example Query 

Subject: Welsh language information provided by other nations

There are about 120,000 Welsh speakers living in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland and new public sector standards come into force in May 2020 on the use of Welsh language in systems, websites and anything public facing.

Is Welsh being incorporated into third sector websites, leaflets etc. alongside other languages in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland?

I would highly recommend using the PIF Ask the Membership service. I had great, really quick responses from members when I asked if they had Welsh language materials as NHS Wales is working towards achieving national standards next year for public sector organisations to have bilingual websites.
