If you are not keeping up on current internet trends, you will sure have difficultly in understanding some of their Internet languages, or known as Internet Slangs (Net Lingo). The reason I prepared these guides is to help you understand what your kids and online friends are talking about on the Internet. Not because those teens are lazy enough to type, but to make the communication fast!!

New Internet users and online Geeks, who met together, mainly through Instant Messenger connections, are the ones who did not understand what other chatters are saying possibly across the globe. One thing is for sure, understanding a new Internet language isn’t as easy as it seems. Just imagine when you have zero resource to refer to what those online Geeks are saying!
For example, ‘lol’ can be translated to ‘laughing out loud’.
aslr – age sex location race
atw – All the way
csl – can’t stop laughing
tcoy – take care of yourself
ayk – are you kidding
plmk – please let me know
aiui – as I understand it
o/y – oh yeah
Although they are known as new Internet language, but I personally feel that it’s also exists in SMS language because I got this type of language from SMS too. So, if you receive this type of language from a friend and don’t really understand about it, you can just paste it to the NoSlang Translator box to get its meaning with a button of click directly.
Besides translating, NoSlang also has a its own Dictionary called Internet Slang Dictionary. There is also a search engine where you can quickly look for similar words related to any Slangs you found.
