We (Pedagoguery Software Inc. - http://www.peda.com/) are a small Canadian software company that is interested in making our software available for use to mathematics students in a variety of languages. One of our popular programs, Poly (http://www.peda.com/poly) is used in many countries and has interfaces in more than a few languages (English, Spanish, French, Danish, Italian, German, Polish, Korean, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese; Japanese translation is underway).

In many cases we work with volunteers from other countries to translate our software (the volunteers are usually mathematics teachers who would like our software to be available for their use). In exchange for translation, we normally provide a site license of the software to the translator's school and give credit to the translator within the software itself.

Would anyone out there be interested in (and capable of) working with us on an Irish translation? (Translation may well involve constructing some new Irish words for some mathematical concepts so a good background in mathematics and the Irish language would be necessary.)

Is the Irish language used in any schools for mathematics instruction? Any contact information or leads would be appreciated.

Any comments or questions are welcome. Feel free to forward this message.

Best wishes,
Jeff

The organisation for irish language schools is Gaelscoileanna http://www.iol.ie/gaelscoileanna

I suggest getting in touch with them

There are 140+ primarily schools and 40+ secondary schools where the medium of instruction is Irish.
