How would you say "tag" as in tagging someone on Facebook?

You can actually change the interface language of FB to Irish. There is also an Irish language interface pack for both Windows and MS Office.

Neato! It would be an interesting experience to change the interface to Irish :}.

Here is the link for the Office language interface packs.
https://support.office.com/en-US/Articl ... n-US&ad=US

For the Windows UI it's very easy. Just search for "Switch input language" from the start screen/start menu and you should be able to figure it out from there. This is the case for Windows Professional/Enterprise. I am not certain about Windows Home Premium.

I used to have the Facebook interface for Irish, but the Irish was so terrible (and changed so often) I stopped using it.

In any case, this was something someone used in a post.

Was it just done on an adhoc fashion, or has the 'terminology' been nailed down yet?

If you're asking about the word for "tag," it was on the Irish Language Learners page, and it was encouraging people to share the post and "tag" their friends. The word used was "leaist," which apparently came from focal.ie, but that I've never heard or seen before (it's not in FBG or de Bhaldraithe).

I've encountered quite a few errors there, and I'm not sure if this is one, or if it's a legitimate term that I just haven't encountered before.

If you're asking about the Facebook interface, I don't know. It's almost as though they use something like Google "trashlate"...some of the terms remained untranslated, some were poorly translated, some seemed to change almost daily (it was kind of a sport to figure out what the Irish for "like" was going to be from day to day!)
