Sadly, the 12-year-old AOLer translator went down sometime in 2012 between March 1 and 6. Rather than let this wonderful artifact of the early web die, I rescued it from the Wayback Machine. (I also tidied up the Javascript a bit because it was a mess.)

The English-to-12-Year-Old-AOLer Translator

UPDATE 6/15/2005: I have no idea how it happened, but this site appears to have become somewhat of a phenomenon on the internet. As such, I’ve added a copyright notice at the bottom that includes contact information. Thanks to everyone who has enjoyed my creation!

This translator will take what you write in it and turn it into the manner a 12-year-old AOLer would write it. Type in what you want translated and then click the button.
