Our Welsh language commitment

06 November 2018

Ofcom has submitted its first annual report (covering 2017-18) on its compliance with the statutory Welsh Language Standards to the Welsh Language Commissioner.

The Standards have allowed Ofcom to build on our work in Welsh since they were introduced in 2017.  

Ofcom takes its obligations in relation to the Welsh language extremely seriously and treats the Welsh and English languages on the basis of equality.  

Over the past year, we have:

  • produced Welsh language versions of key documents such as Connected Nation, Media Nation, Annual Report and a report on Representation and Portrayal on BBC Television.
  • launched a Welsh-language Twitter account, @OfcomCymraeg, to help engage with Welsh speakers; and
  • provided a range of bespoke resources in Welsh, including videos and apps for checking broadband and mobile reception.

Our first annual report to the Welsh Language Commissioner is an interactive digital document which you can view below. This format enables Ofcom to showcase its Welsh language activities in a visual and engaging way.

See an executive summary of the report (PDF, 185.4 KB). The full Annual report is available in Welsh only.
