changelog

Realtime Singlish provides you with a tool for instant transliteration based on a scheme. The program helps you customize this specific scheme code to fit your preferences. What Realtime Singlish really does is convert Singlish, which is an English-based creole language spoken in Singapore to Sinhala, the language of the largest ethnic group in Sri Lanka.

Targeting Singlish-aware users, Realtime Singlish is especially created for this particular group and only this group, thus it can only seem like Gibberish to the rest of the world. Being a low prestige language in Singapore and actively fought against by the Singaporean government, Singlish is a heavily discouraged in both mass media and schools.

Its vocabulary comprises English, Malay, Cantonese, Tamil, Teochew and Hokkien terms and it still is used during friendly conversations, various coffee shops (kopi tiams) or even shopping malls. The general note states the Singlish to be a dying language though, and it may become extinct in the coming generations.

Until then, software such as Realtime Singlish keeps it alive alongside typical small talk and other situations that ask for its use. In order to enable the application, you must press the Scroll Lock key. Realtime Singlish generates the transliteration right away, as you type the Singlish words.

The bottom line is that Realtime Singlish is a very interesting piece of software as long as it fits your needs. If you are looking for a tool to instantaneously convert your Singlish to Sinhala, then Realtime Singlish becomes a vital application that can do that for you faster than you can blink.
