Dothraki Translator


For the TV show Game of Thrones they hired a linguist to create a complete fictional language for the nomadic equestrian Dothraki warrior people.

Creating a full Engligh-to-Dothraki translator is a little too complicated for this class. Fortunately, someone else did it, and made an API for it!

In this project you will make a command-line or web app that accepts user input in English, passes it to the API, parses the response, and displays the translation.


  • AJAX (or node HTTP client)
  • JSON (for response parsing)



  • add a cache layer where if the user asks for phrases that have already been translated, they are returned from local storage, and the rest of the message is sent for translation in whole or in part
