This translator finds words with inflected endings, the translator will automatically try different permutations of accents / thorn characters to translate words.
for example if you enter 'þara' it will find 'þára' with an accent over the 'a'.
Old English accents should take the form é not ē . Words can be entered directly including æ þ ð characters EG ofþryccaþ
Alternatively .ae (dot ae) will be substituted with æ, .th with þ, and .dh with ð. So ofþryccaþ could be written of.thrycca.th
