Fun Online Translation

Have you ever tried computerized translation? I did a couple years ago and the person I sent my message to wasn't that impressed.

Well, here is a cool web translation service that translates text into and out of text messaging shorthand lingo.

For example, the phrases: "Just type in your SMS, TXT, emoticon, smiley, slang or chat speak and let transL8it! convert it to plain english -- OR -- type in your phrase in english and convert it to SMS TXT lingo slang!"

turn into: "jst typ n yor SMS, TXT o ch@ spEk & Lt transL8it! cvert it 2 pln eng --o-- typ n a frAze n eng & cvert it 2 SMS TXT lingo!"

So, now you can impress your grandkids with your webspeak savvy, or you can use the service to figure out what the heck they were saying in that last email they sent you!

It can do ultra leet too, which uses no letters at all.
