Hello. I have been searching for an online KOrean transaltion site in which I can cut and paste Korean text in one box, and get a Hangul translation in the other box. Does anyone here know of any such sites. Please let me know. Thank you.

Umm.... Korean to Hangul? Aren't they the same thing? Sep 16, 2006

Hello there,

I'm not sure what you mean by "Korean to Hangul translation". Isn't Korean Hangul? Or you mean you have some ENGLISH text that is written just like the way Korean sounds in English (e.g. "An-nyong-hase-yo" for Korean hello) and you'd like it to be translated into Hangul?


In that case, sorry, I don't think there's a website/translation resource that provides such (awesome!!) service...

Could you clarify exactly what you're asking?

If that is what the asker is looking for you could try:

www.yudit.org/cgi-bin/uniconv/uniconv.cgi?

I pasted in An-nyong-hase-yo, selected Hangul and got out 안-뇽-하세-요. Only the second glyph seems to differ slightly from 안녕하세요.

Now that is fancy! Sep 16, 2006

I must retract my previous 'there-is-no-such-website' comment and better keep up with today's technology.

And Robert is right; conversion seems pretty good, which amazes me.

Even though there's still a world of difference (or laughter!) between "안녕하세요" and "안뇽하세요", I think it could be fixed if you use "nyoung" instead of "nyong". Seems like it all comes down to entering correct English spelling for each Korean syllable.

Good luck!

Hello. I apologize for not getting back to you guys sooner.

To answer the first question:

Hangul is Romanized spelling and pronounciation of Korean text.

I found one site for Hangul coversion that works:

http://www.sori.org/hangul/conv2kr.cgi?q=Yeongjin&m=0

I can just cut and paste Korean text, and it will transliterate the text into Romanized spelling and pronunciation.

I found this site on Korean Romanization:

http://www.sori.org/hangul/romanizations.html

Does anyone know of a site where I can transliterate this form of Korean to romainzed text?

Hangul isn't romanization Mar 15, 2010

Hangul IS NOT romanization spelling or pronunciation of Korean text. Hangul is the name of the Korean 'alphabet' and writing system. Romanization of Korean is called "Korean romanization" or "Hangul romanization". There are several systems of Korean romanization including the McCune-Reischauer system (used by scholars, librarians, etc.), the Yale system (used by linguists mostly), and the Revised Romanization system (the system used in Korea on all of their signs/documents).

I am working on a Korean corpus (a large body of Korean language data), my site has a romanizer on it. It only romanizes/hangulizes from and to the Yale system right now, but it should expand in the future.
