About Me

I’m Gwen and I am a native Welsh speaker from North Wales, now living in Church Village, Pontypridd. I was brought up purely through the medium of Welsh on a farm overlooking Portmeirion, the famous Italian style village built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis.

I graduated from Bangor University with a joint honours degree in Welsh and Religious Studies and spent my entire career (nearly 30 years) working within a bilingual environment, mainly in the education sector.

I set up my translation business, Cywrain (a Welsh term for ‘Skilful’ in English) as a sole trader over 8 years ago having spent over 25 years undertaking translation work within various governance and senior administrative roles within the HE and third sector.

A first class high quality, friendly, professional, reliable and quick service

“Gwen Aubrey has been an approved external translator for the University of South Wales since 2015. As part of the student communications team at the University, we have used her translation services on many occasions to ensure compliance with the Welsh Language Standards.

Gwen is always extremely efficient and responsive to requests for translation, often turning work around within a few hours or less to meet our communication and social media requirements.

This has considerably reduced the pressure on our team, enabling us to respond immediately and effectively to fast changing communications. Gwen is very personable, professional and is a delight to work with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gwen’s services.”

[Susan Radford, Blaenau Gwent Council]

“Excellent translation service.  We use this service on a regular basis – the response is immediate and translation documents are always completed in a timely manner. We wouldn’t use anyone else.”

[Katie Cooke, Measuring the Mountain Project, University of South Wales]

“Gwen has been doing all of the translation work for Measuring the Mountain (a Welsh Government funded project looking at experiences of social care) since May 2019.

She is fantastic to work with – communicative about timeframes, turns work around incredibly quickly (which is massively helpful!) and feeds back about any quality issues or concerns in the copy I’ve sent over. I could not be happier with the service she provides.”

[The Innovation Partnership Limited]

“We have used Gwen over the last few years to translate technical business development reports, which we produce for Welsh Government and Welsh Universities.

Gwen has always worked to a very high standard and to what is usually a very tight deadline. We would always recommend Gwen and she goes about her work in a very pleasant and professional manner. It is always a pleasure to work with Gwen.”

[Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum]

“Gwen consistently delivers a high quality Welsh translation service for a broad range of literature, ranging from small items of marketing literature right up to fully scoped up industry specific reports used at senior government level.  Not just translation but editing and composition also, under strict and often challenging timescales and always meets them clearly, concisely and to spec.

 By far the best translation service we’ve used.”
