TeX has hyphenation patterns for various languages at http://tug.org/tex-hyphen/#languages
Some other application like Firefox use hyphenation algorithms based on TeX. https://github.com/mozilla/gecko-dev/blob/master/intl/hyphenation/README.hyphen
The Scribus 1.5 source has a file scribus/third_party/hyphen/README with the comment below. Scribus might be able to import the Welsh hyphenation rules from TeX.
   * Warning! Correct working of Libhnj *needs* prepared hyphenation patterns. *
   For example, generating hyph_en_US.dic from "hyphen.us" TeX patterns: perl substrings.pl hyphen.us hyph_en_US.dic ISO8859-1
Scribus might also be able to use hunspell files at http://troi.org/en/hunspell-cy.html or http://www.cm.ph.bham.ac.uk/software/zenwalk/old/cat/main/packages/hunspell-cy_GB.html
