Lester Wunderman (inventor of direct marketing)(cheers fella!) turned 90 this year. As a special gift Wunderman UK sent him a card in Cockney. I built this to help him translate it into something a little more American friendly.
Wunderman have long since taken down their tributes to Lester – but you can still have a little go yourself here.
It runs off an xml file. I searched for a cockney api but unfortunately most cockney translators only translate one way – this translator translates from Cockney to English too.
I think the most impressive thing about this site is that it took me two days to build (downtime during the CMax build). They said it couldn’t be done. They were wrong
I would also like to say I had nothing to do with the font choice! The guys who designed the interface are usually print media designers – I tried to talk them out of Times New Roman but some people just wont be told.
