DTXTR translates tweenspeak

May 28th, 2009 No comments

Via TechCrunch comes word of a new tool from LG called DTXTR (de-text-er).  It’s being (humorously) described as a translater of the texting language used by tweens and teens as shorthand for long phrases that would be painful to thumb-type.

dtxtrTo translate, you enter the tweentongue phrase on the left or the English phrase on the right.  You then click the DTXTR button to get the proper translation.

dtxtr-2I will say that the dictionary is pretty limited and relies on user-inputted updates to its terminology database.  However, it did give me a new tweenword to describe my newly teen daughter.  😀
