Our translation tool allows you to make Egyptian hieroglyph symbol combinations which would sound similar to
standard English language letters. This is called a phonetic translation. Although there are some differences
between the sounds made by the letters and the way they are combined in each language, hopefully our tool
is a good approximation of the sounds usings the original egyptian letters.
Our custom algorithm also attempts to analyze the sound of the whole word to be translated - not just letters - giving a more accurate result.
- There is no letter 'C' in egyptian. When you enter a word to translate
'C' could be a 'K' sound, such as in (C)art or it could be an 'S' sound, such as in (C)ease. A computer can't tell between the two. We attempt to process these differences and provide the best translation possible.
- Similarly, 'X' is made from 'K' and 'S'. The word Axe (phonetically translated) would be AKS. We remove the 'E' so the word is not pronouced AKS-E.
- 'C' and 'H' are changed to 'CH' (Tether symbol)
- There are many more modifications made to the translated text and we continue to refine the translation algorithm!
This is the basic Hieroglyph alphabet we use:
