Hi , I have been "tasked" the job of translating my companys' mission statement and values page from our handbook into old scots(same as our Rabbie Burns)to promote the'homecoming'for the rest of my work colleagues.I have found it practically impossible ! Any suggestions on how I can do this as accurately as possible without making the text look like gibberish?

Preserve the Scots tongue by any means but fer crivvens sake root oot yince an' fer a' the slang an' americanism that disnae belong. Evolution not dissolution!

As a native Doric speaker, the emphasis on Gaelic makes me cross! The use of Scots needs support just as much.

Regardless of where you live language is important and should be cherished. It is part of our identity and gives us contact with our past, this keeps alive social history.

Thank you for trying to do something about this. On a visit to the "Hame Airts" I was fair scunnered listening to people tring so hard to be "Second Hand Englishmen", and making a complete fool of themselves in the process. One lass was a bit peeved when I asked her about it. Come on you people. Be a proud nation again. It's nae sae bad speakin' like yer Grannie!

Working with foreign teachers of English, I constantly see their astonishment on encountering the (pitifully small)proportion of Scots literature that's written in Scots - which is, they say, a lot more vigorous and more divergent from the "standard" language than their own national dialects. Lang past time Scots wis gettin mair constant airin an use.
