    Figured I'd drop this here too. The RP forums haven't has a hit since September.
    So, for anyone who wants it!

    The following software will translate a basic English sentence into its Ultima Gargish equivalent.
    Punctuation is currently supported but only at the end of one translated sentence.
    Feel free to end a sentence with ?. or !
    Full paragraph translation will be available in the next version.
    The translator is now stand alone. One file, two clicks, no installation.
    This software it to help Ultima enthusiasts to become familiar with one of the aspects of in game culture
    that is not exposed to us regularly, the language of the newest race.
    While the program does not translate from Gargish to English, after repeated use and familiarization
    with the outcome of your translations, players will be able to speak Gargish without use of the translator, as well as better use the translator. It is a very limited language, currently with only 769 translatable words.
    If you want to translate a large paragraph , just put a space before commas , and spaces between sentences.

    Next Version: Full paragraph translation. Extended language database.

    That's pretty cool thank you. Please keep up the good work. As someone who makes use of translators quite often being a Drow speaking character I have always loved a good translator.

    Well there isn't. But you can readily go and check the names of gargoyles in their emerging game, Ultima VI. There are many names. Some take from adjectives and add the word for 'one' at the end. Such as Beh-Lem "Justice - one", or, the just one. One of my favorite key names form Ultima six was Vasagralem. which breaks down to Vas-Agra-lem which breaks down further to, Great - attack - one. Or what the common speaker would call, the great fighter. So you can see the basis for the language and its interpretation on their end to make names.

    For those interested you can go to http://thezogcabal.com/translator/gargtrans.htm and download a version that supports punctuation and full paragraph translation.
    There are also version for people who use linux and mac that have trouble viewing the strange accented characters in the gargish language.
    There is also a two way translator there that will translate from gargish to common. But the language is mapped out in a very broad way so reverse translations can get pretty messed up.

    But this will give away the secrets behind my gargoyle name on Europa! Not that anyone was asking who Ulemnesamolovak, or Ulem-nas-amo-la-vak was let alone what it meant, but still... nice work, you monster!
