Campaigners have been trying to get Marks and Spencer to add Gaelic to their self-service machines in Scotland. The language choice if you were to go into their store in Inverness and use the self-service machine the language choice would include Welsh but no Gaelic option would be available.
The Facebook group Support Bilingual Signs in Scotland (Gaelic/English) has organised an on-line campaign but it looks like M&S won't do much about it, in the short term anyway, Customer Services Advisor Mike Thompson is telling protesters:
'I am afraid that these machines are only able to hold 6 languages on them. These same 6 languages are on all of our self service tills across the UK. The decision was made that these were the most popular languages that would be used the most.I will however ensure that your comments with regards to Gaelic being used are logged for the attention of our policies teams.'
It is a bit incongruous to go into a Highland Store and be offered a Welsh language option but not a Gaelic one and it is disappointing. It may be however that it would cost a small fortune in programming resources to add another language or allow local variations, sometimes seemingly simple solutions on databases are just not possible.
