Lingo 2 Word has been entertaining and informing our visitors with free English to SMS Translations and SMS to English translations since September 2001

What Lingo2word has been used for;

  • A Dictionary and spell checker as it should be!, the translator allows any text to be simplified into its plain english version this reduces the confusion that might come from using shortened forms of a word or even puts into simple terms some of our harder to understand words. Whilst doing this it will also identify and change any spelling mistake or typo that might be in it.
  • Has been used for a myriad of school assignments on the effects of text messaging language
  • We have also converted several books into sms language on behalf of clients
  • We provide several custom interfaces for dictionary searched and word meanings, these are can be branded and un branded solutions
  • We also have custom interfaces to the translator to be used on other websites , these will pass in a message and return the plain english text without any slang.
  • Our emoticon search is also very useful, still believe we are the only people able to search on emoticons and smiley's
  • As our site is very popular some of these services are hosted at less busy locations
  • Fun text messages , Well they are just fun!, use these for keeping in touch with friends or find some special romance messages for your valentine
