Web Site Translates Teen Text Messages for Parents

Wot r ur kids txting? If you're wondering — or 1dering — there's a new online translation tool that helps decipher the code, reports Agence France-Presse.

Mobile phone maker LG Electronics MobileComm USA has launched "DTXTR," a Web service which translates teen text speech into plain English.

Plug in text shortcuts such as OMG! or 2G2BT and get back the translation — in this case "Oh my God!" and "too good to be true."

DTXTR includes a glossary of hundreds of definitions for shorthand text phrases, abbreviations and symbols.

It also includes text tips for parents to help them "stay ahead of the curve."
