Every day hundreds, if not thousands of normal folk from around the world struggle to communicate with the pirate population, and with such a complex language most fail to ever understand what they’re trying to say. So there was only one solution – build an app to translate English, into Pirate English!
Although fairly simple, iTalkPirate allows users to translate a vast array of words and phrases, and then gives them the option to share it via email, Twitter, or Facebook. To go alongside the app I created a micro-site and every day people who previously couldn’t get their point across to your average pirate, can now talk at length with them!
This was a personal project that I put together with help from almost everyone I know to get in hundreds of translations and idiosyncrasies of the pirate language.
