The increase on the use of communication technology (e-mails, blogs, chats etc) has perpetrated the growth of SMS (short message service) language. The phenomenon of SMS language evolved as a short form of plain language text, which is rather simple and faster to type as opposed to the traditional plain text.

The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility and implement faster approach to the algorithm of retrieving SMS text translation designed by Mr. Ademola Olusula Adesina on his Computer Science PhD project.

SMS translation should not be confused with the spell checker. The system will use the client server approach where the mobile phone or personal computer will carry the SMS translator which will communicate with the database server to receive the queried SMS word in a very fast and effective way
