Bha mi a’ buidhinn le co-ionnsaichear sa Ghàidhlig agus inntireach mi a’ lèirig sin bha mi a’ dol air tàir na obrach, ach tha cryptologic anns an t-ainm aige. Chan eil fhios agam an facal airson e agus tha mi a’ ionnsaichear, nach fileanta. Chan eil sa Learn Gaelic no Faclair Mòr. Ni mò fhios agam na h-eile dòigh-ràdh seo. Dè mar a tha sibh ag abair “cryptologic” as Ghàidhlig? Feuch a’s tapadh leibh!

I was talking with a fellow learner in Gàidhlig and I started explaining how I was going to get a job which has cryptologic in its name. I couldn’t tr*nsl*t* it though, none of the dictionaries I looked at have it. I also don’t know if there is another way to get across the concept since I’m not native or fluent. So, my question is what is the word for cryptologic and if there is none how would I get across the concept of the word? Please and thank you!

"Cryptologic?" I don't even understand it in English!

It's the adjectival form of "Cryptology" or the study of cryptography. The study of decoding encrypted language.

criopt-eòlas, fir. gin. -ais, cryptology https://www.faclair.com/ViewEntry.aspx? ... 90AEB9DD4A

So, you can turn that into an adjective -> criopt-eòlach
