A few words from R2-D2...

Posted on


R2d2_l We’ve all been there before: you’re at a party and an R2 unit asks you for the time. Problem is, you don’t speak the language* of astromech droids. Well fear not, this handy site will “translate” phrases from English into R2-ese. No more embarrassing beeps and whistles. No more mistaken insults (“Of course, I didn’t mean to call his mother an overweight glob of grease!”). Order is restored to the galaxy.

(*Okay, your diehard Star Wars fans: exactly what kind of language does R2 communicate in, anyway?)
