Pirate Translator

About

 

The Pirate Translator attempts to translate English language into something you could say in a drunken pirate brawl or when writing to your pirate penpal. A dictionary of nearly 1200 words and phrases are used, not counting variations on verb tense and plurality, making this translator one of the most comprehensive pirate translators in the world. Even if you don't have need to converse with pirates on a regular basis, this app is invaluable for International Talk Like a Pirate Day, September 19th.

For example, here are some translations:

"Hello there! How are you doing? My girlfriend is meeting me later for dinner and some drinks."
"Ahoy thar! How are ye doin'? Me strumpet be meetin' me later fer grub 'n rum."

"I don't know what you're thinking. You cheated! You owe me 5 dollars!"
"I dunno wha' ye're thinkin'. Ye hornswaggler! Ye owe me 5 doubloons!"

Update!

After three years, the Pirate Insult Generator and Pirate Utility iPhone apps got major updates! The Pirate Insult Generator is now the Pirate Utility Lite and includes translations. The Pirate Utility has that and a Pirate Photo Booth!
