A Dragon to English and English to Dragon translator

This program is based on the request here.

You can translate from and to Dragon, based on the language defined in Elder Scrolls.

The program uses a predefined word list.

Strictly speaking, it performs a simple search and replace operation, and not syntactic analysis. This means that:

  • It’s limited to its word list, which is expandable (a tab delimited text file).
  • It does not differentiate, for example between tear (noun) and tear (verb), so in both cases it’ll use ‘luv’ (N).
  • Where multiple words exist in the target language, it’ll include all the possible forms (e.g. Wahl (build/create).

Source included.
