    We don't have the Scottish Gaelic Office 2013 UI strings ready yet so at the moment the terminology and user interface translations on the Language Portal are from Windows 8. I'll post a notice once we have them uploaded.

    Windows Phone 8 isn't currently available in Scottish Gaelic.

    Thanks Palle.

    I know it currently isn't – though encouragingly, it's available as a locale at least, so better performance than iPhone and Android on that, kudos! – but any idea if the plan is to include it?
