 :o

I need that with Na'vi and all other fictional languages, please.  8)

Vawmataw:
majQa'.
But we have excellent Na'vi speakers. Why not use them instead of an online translator?

Tìtstewan:
Cool, but how correct the translators works?
We have http://www.navilator.com/ as translator, but is not really good...

Lance R. Casey:
It's not too good. I tried this:

ghobe', Qapbe'law'. 'ach tlhaQ lujDI'!

...and got this:


--- Quote ---You win this? iv I know, but maybe the honor program.

No, a singularly ineffective policy so far. When you lose, but funny!
--- End quote ---

Also:


--- Quote ---So let's try it the other way. Will it produce an understandable translation now?
--- End quote ---

...yielded:


--- Quote ---vaj Ha' 'oH nID latlh mIw. unDerStanDable mughmeH DaH lIng 'oH?
--- End quote ---

So, looks like we've got a little ways to go yet. ;)

Well, I guess it's just like Google Translator... a good way to get an impression of what was written there in a different language (Klingon or whatever), at best get a 80% correct text, but those translators still need a lot of improvement until we may have, some day, some time, something like an universal translator (communicator) like in Star Trek :D

Just thought this is kinda amazing and odd at the same time, so I wanted to share this.  ;)

About Navilator... the results are just a catastrophe, but it was a great attempt to create a translator for the Na'vi language as well. :)
