After the Envato meetup in Chicago, it became apparent that no two people pronounced anything related to Envato the same. That’s why we’ve developed the official Envato pronunciation guide. Special thanks to Lance for making this guide a reality.
en-vah-toe or en–bot-o
Really, either one works, but the closer you get to making it sound like a Spanish word (en–bot-o), the cooler it sounds. The only truly incorrect pronunciation is in-vay-toe (I’m looking at you, Jarel).
Toots are baby farts. Yes, it makes sense to say toots because we’re just abbreviating tutorial, but it just sounds silly. It’s tuts, like cuts, but with a t.
Contrary to popular belief, it’s actually pronounced Free-Lance’s-witch, not Free-lance-Switch. There is a history behind the name involving Lance and a pet witch, but this is not the appropriate venue to speak of it.
Just like Cgtuts+ and Psdtuts+, you say the abbreviation, then tuts (again, not toots), then plus.
Just remember, the “.” is silent.
Definition: One who snipples.
Definition: Co-founder of Envato and not a dude.
Jar-el or Ja-Rule – It’s impossible to be sure which.
Definition: Web.Appstorm editor, ThemeForest reviewer and the guy that says Envato the most incorrectly.
This pronunciation guide is a work in progress. Feel free to add to it in the comments.
