Old English Translator is running on a standard hosting account and to prevent it exceeding it's allowable resource quota I have written code to stop it overloading the machine it is running on. This code is reducing the number of translation requests in a given time period. Over time I will try and improve the product so that fewer people suffer the 'System Oversubscribed' message without overloading its allowable use of the hosting it is running on.
The website will only perform one translation request every ten seconds.
This translator finds words with inflected endings, the translator will automatically try different permutations of accents / thorn characters to translate words.
for example if you enter 'þara' it will find 'þára' with an accent over the 'a'.
Old English accents should take the form é not ē . Words can be entered directly including æ þ ð characters EG ofþryccaþ
Alternatively .ae (dot ae) will be substituted with æ, .th with þ, and .dh with ð. So ofþryccaþ could be written of.thrycca.th
