I found a number translator (?) here:

http://www.granelda.com/d-calc/d-calc.html

I also downloaded the IPDE which has a number and word translator but I was just wondering if there anything more recent online...

We don't know enough about the D'ni language to be able to translate texts on the fly.

Maratanos said "on the fly". The page you're referring to doesn't fulfill that criterion. ;)

I'm sure the DLF will agree with Maratanos's assertion. Translation is hard enough as it is with such little vocabulary; doing it on the fly is near-impossible at this point. The best we can do is create a "translator" that's actually filled with a database of known texts and their translations, but that would hardly be on the fly either.

We could ask Google to add D'ni to their translation tools. They could at least add a D'ni version of their home page, I mean they already have Klingon.

ROFL, I can't believe they actually have Klingon.

I havn't been able to come across any translation tools either, other than IPDE. :?

I believe they discontinued that program (soliciting translations of the Google search interface) a short while ago. Then again, this link suggests otherwise.

As well as Elmer Fudd, Hacker, Pig Latin and Bork Bork Bork! O.o

Surely we could bug them enough to get them to add D'ni as well. :lol:

This whole thread got me started on a 2-hour wikipedia expedition to learn about constructed languages, from Klingon (which in my youth I attempted to learn, alas, I didn't have enough geek power) to Esperanto.

Seriously, learning stuff is so much fun! :)

And I also added some info about D'ni to the article on constructed languages.

You might enjoy this site: http://www.omniglot.com/

They already have a page on D'ni, as well as every real or fake alphabet that I could think of.
