    changeing string data after it encounter a whitespace

    Hello I made a little Al Bhed translator, a language in Final Fantasy X. It works fine for only doing one word, I would like it to do phrases too. I can input the phrase fine but it only will translate the first word, it stops at the first whitespace it finds. What can I do to have it do the whole string?

    here is the code I am using:

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <string.h>
    
    void main()
    {
    	char ag='y';
    
    	while(ag=='y'||ag=='Y')
    	{
    		int size;
    		int i;
    		char *albhed=new char [256];
    		char *eng=new char [256];
    		char *trans=new char [256];
    		char *buf=new char [1];
    		char *enoab=new char[1];
    
    		cout<<"This is a bilingual translator.\nIt will translate to and from Al Bhed and English."<<endl;
    		cout<<"What language would you be translating from?\n\nE=English\tA=Al Bhed"<<endl;
    		cin>>enoab;
    		strlwr(enoab);
    		if(enoab[0]=='e')
    		{
    			cout<<"This will translate the English language into the Al Bhed language."<<endl;
    			cout<<endl<<"Enter the English word or phrase to tanslate: "<<flush;
    			cin.ignore();
    			cin.getline(eng,256,'\n');
    
    			strlwr(eng);
    			size=strlen(eng);
    
    			for(i=0;i<=size;i++)
    			{
    				buf[0]=eng[i];
    				if(buf[0]=='a'){trans[i]='y';}if(buf[0]=='b'){trans[i]='p';}
    				if(buf[0]=='c'){trans[i]='l';}if(buf[0]=='d'){trans[i]='t';}
    				if(buf[0]=='e'){trans[i]='a';}if(buf[0]=='f'){trans[i]='v';}
    				if(buf[0]=='g'){trans[i]='k';}if(buf[0]=='h'){trans[i]='r';}
    				if(buf[0]=='i'){trans[i]='e';}if(buf[0]=='j'){trans[i]='z';}
    				if(buf[0]=='k'){trans[i]='g';}if(buf[0]=='l'){trans[i]='m';}
    				if(buf[0]=='m'){trans[i]='s';}if(buf[0]=='n'){trans[i]='h';}
    				if(buf[0]=='o'){trans[i]='u';}if(buf[0]=='p'){trans[i]='b';}
    				if(buf[0]=='q'){trans[i]='x';}if(buf[0]=='r'){trans[i]='n';}
    				if(buf[0]=='s'){trans[i]='c';}if(buf[0]=='t'){trans[i]='d';}
    				if(buf[0]=='u'){trans[i]='i';}if(buf[0]=='v'){trans[i]='j';}
    				if(buf[0]=='w'){trans[i]='f';}if(buf[0]=='x'){trans[i]='q';}
    				if(buf[0]=='y'){trans[i]='o';}if(buf[0]=='z'){trans[i]='w';}
    			}
    		}
    		if(enoab[0]=='a')
    		{
    			cout<<"This will translate the Al Bhed language into the English language."<<endl;
    			cout<<endl<<"Enter the Al Bhed word or phrase to tanslate: "<<flush;
    			cin.ignore();
    			cin.getline(albhed,256,'\n');
    
    			strlwr(albhed);
    			size=strlen(albhed);
    
    			for(i=0;i<=size;i++)
    			{
    				buf[0]=albhed[i];
    				if(buf[0]=='a'){trans[i]='e';}if(buf[0]=='b'){trans[i]='p';}
    				if(buf[0]=='c'){trans[i]='s';}if(buf[0]=='d'){trans[i]='t';}
    				if(buf[0]=='e'){trans[i]='i';}if(buf[0]=='f'){trans[i]='w';}
    				if(buf[0]=='g'){trans[i]='k';}if(buf[0]=='h'){trans[i]='n';}
    				if(buf[0]=='i'){trans[i]='u';}if(buf[0]=='j'){trans[i]='v';}
    				if(buf[0]=='k'){trans[i]='g';}if(buf[0]=='l'){trans[i]='c';}
    				if(buf[0]=='m'){trans[i]='l';}if(buf[0]=='n'){trans[i]='r';}
    				if(buf[0]=='o'){trans[i]='y';}if(buf[0]=='p'){trans[i]='b';}
    				if(buf[0]=='q'){trans[i]='x';}if(buf[0]=='r'){trans[i]='h';}
    				if(buf[0]=='s'){trans[i]='m';}if(buf[0]=='t'){trans[i]='d';}
    				if(buf[0]=='u'){trans[i]='o';}if(buf[0]=='v'){trans[i]='f';}
    				if(buf[0]=='w'){trans[i]='z';}if(buf[0]=='x'){trans[i]='q';}
    				if(buf[0]=='y'){trans[i]='a';}if(buf[0]=='z'){trans[i]='j';}
    			}
    		}
    		cout<<endl<<"The translation is:"<<trans<<endl;
    		cout<<endl<<"Do it again? y/n"<<endl;
    		cin>>ag;
    	}
    }
    Thanks in advance for the help.
