The Unbearable Awesomeness Of Being

A New Speak

An old idea I had came back to my mind. Instead of working on botchy translation schemes for webpages, we could build them in a made-up language that'd be easier to translate -to- normal human languages. Something like this:


or, extended:


which would translate to, obviously,

I am a banana.

Or in German,

Ich bin ein Banane.

Or Portuguese!

Eu sou uma banana.

Less Germanic languages would probably require some research, but I think it could be done.

Right now the language that's more likely to work like this is Lojban, and Lojban has too much effort on making it speakable. We don't want speakable, we want typeable.
