A lot of people have been having trouble with the translator, because their computers somehow can't open .jar files. So I've released platform-specific versions in other formats and here they are:

Universal Java:…

Would it be very complicated to add export to svg instead of png? It's basically vectors that you add. It would be easier to modify if need be.

Have you thought about making a version in the same way babel fish works were you write on one side and the translation appears on the other side. That might allow you to make a version were you can write paragraphs, poems, or full fledged stories without it overlapping the design. I have been using the one you created for Mac and am loving it coming up with some interesting designs.

No "C", it wants me to use a "K" instead. It seems no language wants to acknowledge that "Caitlyn" can be spelled in that way! T_T

Hmm, not to sure yet about OS's other than WindowsXP;
But, most console based apps usually require or work better if the apps location(paths) are included in the users or systems path entries - so all the apps support files can be found, while some apps create those entries when installed but usually use the windows registry.

I had to add a path for Maya to find the custom plugins I use with it.

If you install java, it changes the default systems app path for java(usually C:\Windows\Java\) to the currently installed version of java - which is normally installed in the systems Program Files(C:\Program Files\Java\jre7).

Hope that info will inform at least a few users about why the errors happen! :D

@~BlackHatGuy: A console version would be cool too!
To be able to script/process multiple word/files on the
commandline, or even EXEC/Text files with a TAB(EOL)
Or just filenames(less syntax checking) no extensions! :D

Thanks gianfun.  Deleted previous downloaded version, uninstalled java, reinstalled java from your link, then downloaded the platform specific from above.  Application now finally running.

I'm also having an issue with it not running due to "javaw.exe" not being found.  Anyone figured this problem out yet?

love it. All my friends now have their names in Gallifreyan. I did notice that it doesn't like the lowercase c but apart from that its brilliant

I just tried opening this (stumbled upon your site and thought the Gallifreyan translator thing was awesome). I assume I'm supposed to run the .exe file, but when I click on it nothing happens. Am I not doing something correctly?

I love it! Please make this into an app for the Android phones, I'd even be willing to pay for it

I feel kinda dumb asking this, but with what are you supposed to use to open this?
