This publication describes systems and techniques directed to committing a partial candidate for a coding-style language. Key codes representing a coding-style language are input through a user interface to a computing device. In one aspect, the key codes may be pinyin text for translation to an output-language of Chinese characters. The computing device generates output-language candidates that are representative of the key codes. An output-language candidate is identified that represents an intended communication relative to the key codes. A portion of the identified output-language candidate is selected to commit to the intended communication. This partial selection of the output-language candidate is completed through the user interface (e.g., a swipe gesture, a tap gesture). The user interface commits to acceptance only that partial selection of the output-language candidate for the intended communication.
