very frustrated...

I'm a visual-learner. I also "get" things by doing, vs. studying in a book. I copied a story of how the Milky Way came to be, and am trying to translate the words, some of which I can't find, and the words that make sense are spelled nothing like what's written. I've gone to another site and tried to enter the word phonetically, but many times it returns nothing. Other sites have me enter the word in the font (which I do), but then only give me the latin pronunciation. I'm not sure if this site has a lot of members that check often, but everywhere I turn to, I can't seem to be finding much help about anything, let alone asking help for grammar rules and sentence structure. Just when I find a sentence translated to English (which is great, but not what I'm looking for since I"m trying to study sentence structure) and I need to translate the words, I'm at a brick wall. Is there another website that has you enter the actual word in the font and is able to translate it for you? God I hope so at this point.

Trying to use "dictionary" style lookup for translations for Cherokee is not feasible because of the way words are constructed.
