Yes, simple word-by-word translation suggestions can be implemented. Proper MT later.

BTW, as far as I know you have not registered at this site. So you won't be able to test it even, right? ;-)

Hi,

That sounds like a good idea. Can it also be expanded to handle
'phrases'?

Perhaps, once an English phrase is entered, perhaps a new string/field
can be generated containing a simple substitution of English words with
Sinhala words from the glossary component. Of course the grammar would
be a mess, but later when the machine translation algorithms become
available they can be simply plugged in.
