Background: l33t (pronounced "Leet") is l33t for "Elite." It is a dialect of English believed to have evolved from programmers that were forced to use numerals and other characters to represent the alphabet due to frequent keyboard malfunction. The dialect had been dying due to the recent availability of better and cheaper keyboards, but is enjoying a bit of a renaissance lately. We at ioyu.com want to help keep it alive with this translator.
