This English to Pig Latin translation program performs a (near-) perfect translation of any English text to Pig Latin. Words, phrases, sentences, paragraphs and more.

There are many dialects and forms of Pig Latin which vary from region to region, country to country, and language to language, as well as other similar, and dissimilar, Pig Latin-like 'languages'. The dialect shown here tends to hail from California/West Coast of the United States.

Basically, the Pig Latin system used here works as follows:

  • Words that start with a vowel (A, E, I, O, U) simply have "WAY" appended to the end of the word.
  • Words that start with a consonant have all consonant letters up to the first vowel moved to the end of the word (as opposed to just the first consonant letter), and "AY" is appended.
         ('Y' is counted as a vowel in this context)

The algorithm incorporates the following features and special case functionality:

The routines are written in JavaScript version 1.1 (+) for NetScape 3.x (or higher) and Internet Explorer 4.x+, and uses HTML Form objects (Text Areas, Text fields, Buttons and Check Boxes). The algorithms were developed and programmed by Bill Donnelly.
