Seal Script is probably my favorite chinese calligraphic script, but I can't find a good online translator for english to seal or simp/trad chinese to seal. Does anyone know where I can find one of these?

One should seek serenity to cultivate the body, thriftiness to cultivate the morals. If you are not simple and frugal, your ambition will not sparkle. If you are not calm and cool, you will not reach far. - Zhugeliang

I know this web site which is excellent to see seal script and bronze script of known kaishu characters.
But, like the first contributor, I am searching for a web site or a sofware to find from seal characters the corresponding kaishu characters,
using I imagine seal script keys and seal script strokes number, as for kaishu dictionnaries.
