Wot r ur students txting? If you’re wondering — or 1dering — there’s a new online translation tool that helps decipher the code, AFP reports. Mobile phone maker LG Electronics MobileComm USA has launched "DTXTR" (www.lgdtxtr.com), a web service that 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 adults to help them "stay ahead of the curve."
