English to Vulcan & Vulcan to English Translator

Updated August 2019! FAQ and notes below. Please avoid using contractions in your English text!

VULCAN TO ENGLISH

You can translate from Vulcan to English by copy-pasting the text into the Vulcan box. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to translate well if you type directly into the box; I suspect this has something to do with the prevalence of punctuation such as hyphens and apostrophes.

WHERE ARE THE VULCAN CHARACTERS?

This translator uses Roman characters, not Vulcan ones. Sorry! I may be able to implement this in the future.

HOW DO I PRONOUNCE THIS?

For a guide to Vulcan pronunciations I suggest using http://korsaya.org/pronunciation/. I am not a linguist and the thought of implementing pronunciations in this translator is rather daunting. Perhaps I will attempt it in a future update.

VERBS & STRUCTURE

This translator does not always conjugate verbs correctly, and in some cases will also not follow Vulcan sentence structure perfectly. Sorry.

THIS ISN'T 100% ACCURATE!

I know! Translating each word/phrase at a time isn't the best way to translate any language. However, I am not an expert on Vulcan, so I have done my best to build this using the translations given on http://www.starbase-10.de/vld/. Some people have suggested using the Vulcan Language Institute, however the website seems to have been taken down. :( In the future I might poke around korsaya.org and see if I can make some improvements.

I CAN'T TRANSLATE NAMES!

I know. Maybe a future implementation?

I'M BRITISH!

Yes, this translator uses American English. Oops.

WHO ON NEW VULCAN ARE YOU, ANYWAY?

Just some Trekkie. :) I started this project in the summer of 2016 and promptly forgot about it. But now I'm back! I'm neither an expert on Vulcan nor a linguist, so any suggestions are appreciated!

Ever wanted to make a random text generator?
