This app explains what the ancient symbols mean, how they were pronounced and how they formed words and phrases. The App contains 2219 hieroglyphic signs and almost 49,000 words, phrases, titles, epithets, and locations used in Ancient Egypt. The dictionary also contains the Horus, Birth, and Throne names of all the known Pharaohs and Queens of Egypt. Our dictionary has more than twice the content of any other smartphone translation apps.
Hieroglyphics Pro has several modes: Beginner, Student and Pro. Beginner mode uses a minimal set of 200 glyphs and an easy pronunciation guide. Student mode allows choice of over 700 glyphs, organized by shape, and standard transliteration. The Pro mode uses all 1,071 glyphs in Gardiner’s classic categories with over 1200 additional New Kingdom and later signs. A unique feature of Hieroglyphics Pro is the ability to find glyphs by how often they are used in inscriptions. Adding the common signs to a phrase or word is a snap! Egyptian words and phrases are drawn graphically in groups, in the artistic style of the ancient inscriptions.
For Students and Professionals, the App now offers direct keyboard text entry of Gardiner codes (i.e., A1, D21, Aa2) or phonetic shortcuts as defined by the MdC (i.e., Htp, nTr, r, etc.). Very quick and convenient!
Hieroglyphics Pro is a modern iOS 15 App, back compatible to iOS 13, Dark Mode and all. It contains help files and links to both on-line references and to printed books for advanced study.
Hieroglyphics Pro has been developed and evolved in consultation with professional Egyptologists.
