Bi-lingual alt-text

HI Just a query.

I'm involved in producing a bi-lingual website for a community group, in
English and Welsh.

When it comes to the Welsh part of the site, in which language should I
put write the alt text for pictures.

Obviously to keep it PC I should put them in Welsh in line with the rest
of the language on that page, however what is the point if a screen
reader can only work in English?

Has anyone got any experience of producing bi lingual websites with alt

Let me know!
