The 3 Best Emoji Translator Websites and Mobile Apps

Translate emojis to and from plain English to see what they really mean

Emojis help us better express our emotions online and in text messages when words aren't enough. Despite this, the complexity of our thoughts and feelings still goes far beyond the limited range of ideograms and smiley faces offered by the keyboard on our mobile devices.

Even when you think you just used the best three or four emojis to convey a specific message accurately, this doesn't guarantee other people will be able to translate it so quickly. Likewise, decoding the messages behind emojis used by others can be just as confusing. In these types of cases, an emoji translator tool can come in handy.
