What is Morse Code?

Morse Code is a way of character encoding. It can be referred to as one of the oldest ways of character encoding. This type of encoding includes electric pulses. In addition, electric pulses are used for transmitting and receiving messages. The pulses are represented using dashes and dots. Dash(-) represents a high pulse and Dot(.) represents a low pulse. When we arrange it in series they form a message.


Saying 'Hello' in Morse Code will look like this:

.... . .-.. .-.. ---

So, use the Morse Code Translator to encode your name or text to morse code. Also, observe how many short and long pulses are there. Because through the pulses you can determine the alphabet or letter behind the code. In addition, morse code is the most secure way to send or receive a message from long distances. Mostly army or secret service people used it to pass the secret messages.

Why was it Introduced?

Samuel F.B Morse and Alfred Vail are the inventors of Morse Code. In the beginning, the Morse Code was widely used for Electric Telegraphy. Morse Code revolutionized the communication system back in the 1800s.

The initial fire to originate morse code grew inside Samuel F.B Morse after a heartbreaking incident happened to him. In 1825, he was working in Washington D.C. One day he received a letter mentioning that his young wife had died in New Haven, Connecticut. Along with death, the most heartbreaking thing for him was that he couldn't do anything to save her. Also, he was unable to attend the funeral because it was very late by the time Samuel got the letter.

Hence, he decided to develop a faster way of sending and receiving messages. Finally, he was in the team who were the developers of the first telegraphs. Telegraph is a machine that transmits and receives a message from long distances.

Basic Overview of Morse Code

Every English alphabet (A - Z) and numbers (0 - 9) have unique Morse Code. Memorizing all of them is a bit tough. Therefore, we have developed the Morse Code Translator for making the translation very simple and fast.

The following tables define the alphabet, numbers, and the special character's morse code. Even more, you can find any character's morse code using these tables.

Morse Code Alphabet (International)

How to Convert Text to Morse Code?

Dealing with any kind of Morse translation, the most vital thing is the Morse Code Chart. Memorizing the full chart is difficult, so it's better if you keep this chart handy. You can access the chart anytime from our website.

Let's understand the translation with the help of an example.


Let's convert "Cake" into morse code.

When you place this word on our translator then you will get the output as below.

-.-. .- -.- .

Let's check how we can get this manually.

Text to Morse Code

Follow the step by step instructions below.

  1. "Cake" has four letters 'c', 'a', 'k', and 'e'.
  2. First of all, Look for the Morse code for all individual letters from chart.
  3. Starting from the first put all Morse codes in order.
  4. At the end you will get a string like this "-.-. .- -.- .". It's your Morse code translation result.
  5. That's it. Very Simple!

The same thing happens in our morse code translator to convert Text into Morse Code. Also, you can try writing your name in morse code. Then verify it using the translation tool.

How to Convert Morse Code to Text?

This thing requires more focus. Missing any dot or dash means wrong translation. But don't worry about it. Use our morse code translator to convert morse code into English or text.

The process of morse code to text translation is almost the same as of text to morse code. The difference is that in text to morse code, you need to find the consecutive morse code for the character. Here, you need to find the consecutive character for the morse code.


Convert ".... .. -.-.--" into text.
