Shakespearean English to Modern English or the other way around

or the other way around

Shakespearean English, also called Elizabethan English, was spoken in the Early Modern English era (1476-1667). Shakespeare made a big influence even on modern English. He invented about 1700 words by himself! Many of these words are still used today, like bandit, critic, elbow, lonely, etc.

I made this translator based off of Shakespeare's sonnets and plays (1588-1611), the Mayflower Compact (1620), the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut (1639), and the English Bill of Rights (1689).

One thing that is special about this translator is that it can identify when to use "thee" or "thou" (or when to use "ye" or "you"). "Thou" (or "ye") is used in a nominative/subjective case, but "thee" (or "you") is used in a subjective case. It was very, very, very hard to make it that way. All of the other translators on Lingojam only use "thou".

This is not a perfect translator. Please give any suggestions that you have.
