Hi, I'm making a translator that translates Modern English to Early Modern English (Shakespearean) could somebody please help? If you're interested and know a few things about translators, grammar, Shakespearean, or coding in python, then you can help.

Reply if you're interested and meet at least one of the above requirements.

Thanks!

@PattanAhmed are you interested in helping?

@PattanAhmed I've invited you to the repl

EDIT: Don't mind my sloppy coding

PattanAhmed (1397)

@TerrorbuildLuna Ok,
I think it's better to have you online as well.
Because we can chat there.
Tell your free time and we both can set an appointment at that particular time because I need some ideas and etc things from you as well.
Thanks!

Something like:

english_to_old = {
  'english_word_here': 'shakespearean_word',
  'and_so_on': 'wherefore_art_thou'
}
# add em checking here

um, isn't that like a regexp replace?

TerrorbuildLuna (38)

@Coder100 haha yes. But that's where punctuation comes in. The commas and the periods and all that makes it more difficult. I don't want to just write the words with commas in the translator. And what about past tense? All those things make this a complicated project; too complicated for me to do alone.

EDIT: forgive me for the bad grammar

oh, well just replace those out @TerrorbuildLuna
