Ever get an SMS and have absolutely no idea what the acronym soup is supposed to impart? Web app DTXTR (read: de-texter) translates txt speak into human-friendly words.

The application is a novelty app made by the folks at LG to help us oldies understand “teen speak.” The translation tool actually operates in both directions, so you can enter your plain English and it’ll spit out teen speak if you need a little help with SMS brevity. Apart from the translater, you can also browse the DTXTR glossary and study up on some new textin’ terminology.
