Our English to Sinhala Translation Tool is powered by Google Translation API. You can start typing on the left-hand text area and then click on the "Translate" button. Our app then translates your english word, phrase, or sentence into Sinhala.

The translation only takes a few seconds and allows up to 500 characters to be translated in one request.

This translation software is evolving day by day and Google Engineers are working on it to make Sinhala translation more intelligent and accurate. Hopefully, one day it will produce near to perfect translation!

Sinhala language is widely spoken. More than 16 million people in Sri Lanka speaks this language. For the rest who cannot speak the Sinhala Language, translating Sinhala to English could be quite difficult. Many websites provide services to translate Sinhala for a few dollars. While it is a good idea to pay for translating lots of text (such as books, articles) and for professional service, there is no point paying for commonly used sentences, greeting messages, and other informal use. For these purposes, this tool can be used.
