Woohoo! Wordle in Hebrew

I’ve been playing around with Wordle and Hebrew. I know that I can type directly into Wordle and get Hebrew, but I wanted to see if there was anywhere on the Internet from which I could copy Hebrew text and paste it into Wordle.

I went to my old friend, Mechon-Mamre and found the section where there is letter-only text that displays vowels when you hover over it (which is actually pretty cool).

I copied the first chapter of Megillat Esther and pasted it right into Wordle. And got the image below. Woohoo! Are you playing with Wordle in Hebrew? Why not? Email me with your thoughts!

  3. Hi!
    I’ve just discovered Wordle, and am trying to paste Hebrew in, but the Hebrew is showing up a gobblygook. How do you do paste the Hebrew in?

    • Hi Tsipi – thanks for writing. I have been successful using Hebrew that is on the web, such as from Mechon-Mamre. You can also see if it works to put the Hebrew in http://gate2home.com/ and copy it into Wordle.
