Unable to translate cryptologic 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 translate it though, none of the dictionaries I looked at have it and since I’m a learning I can’t make up a word or change an existing word. 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?

I think you could translate it as còd-eòlas, but I don't think anyone would! I think it's a word you'd be safe using the English version of - not that any parts of it are really English anyway.
