Find oot aboot whit the Scottish Pairlament

The Scottish Parliament is making strenuous efforts to get its message across; not just in English but in Scots:

We want tae mak siccar that as mony folk as can is able tae find oot aboot whit the Scottish Pairlament dis and whit wey it warks.


Furthermore:

You are walcome tae visit the Pairlament tae hae a keek roon or find oot aboot whit wey the Pairlament warks.


I certainly shouldn't want to get into a dispute about whether, properly speaking, Scots is a language at all: I'm sure these are very deep waters. But, if language it is, it's the only one that you can translate into English with the help of a spell-checker.

Funny, you can translate the page into Urdu, Bengali, 中文版本, Arabic and a lot of other languages but not to English and not to Gaelic!
