Ogham Translator, Transliterator, Transcriber — what's the difference?

Ogham is not a language, but an alphabet. Much like the English language uses the Latin alphabet, the ancient Irish spoke Primitive Irish and used the Ogham alphabet.

A translator translates from one language to another, whereas a transliterator or transcriber converts letters from one alphabet to the corresponding letters of another alphabet.

This tool simply converts Latin characters (eg. ABC) to Ogham symbols (eg. ᚐᚁᚉ) – this is called transliteration. This tool does not translate from English to Primitive Irish and there is no such translator in existence.
