Pirate translator

I’m working on an english to pirate translator. I’ve used this technology to create a pirate bible making “god” more accessible to pirates which is why a lot of the translations are biblical. Here are the translations so far. I have been using php and mysql to replace the words but php does have its limitations. I’ll probably write a java program instead. Enjoy!
