You'll have Americans complaining if 'Mom' isn't accepted as an alternative! :-)

Thankfully Mam is accepted as an alternative for us Welshies! :)

Doesn't that mean it's not being translated?

Depends on your definition of translated, I guess!

@Cynphony In Welsh English, mam is often used rather than mum. There's a few other varieties of English that use 'mam' as well, such as English dialects in the north of England. :)

Should "Mummy" be accepted as well, or is there another word for that?
