I'm not sure how to translate "I clean" into Gàidhlig. Google translate says "Glan mi" (not sure if that's correct). What I can tell you, is that "tha" would correspond to "am" in this sentence ("am", "is", or "are"). Also "a' glanadh" corresponds to the action of cleaning. "Ag + verb" does this. I believe the technical term is a participle
