This App is simply the best interactive, most complete, self contained dictionary and translator between English and Ancient Egyptian!
This app explains what the ancient symbols mean, how they were pronounced and how they formed words and phrases.
The App contains 2229 hieroglyphic signs, and now over 54,860 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. All vetted against modern professional references.
Hieroglyphics Pro has several modes:
Beginner, Student and Pro.
Beginner mode simplifies the App with a minimal set of 200 glyphs and an easy pronunciation guide.
Student mode show the standard Middle Egyptian Gardiner set of over 700 glyphs, organized by shape, and standard transliteration.
The Pro mode uses all 1,071 glyphs in Gardiner’s classic categories Plus 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 quadrat groups, in the artistic style of the ancient inscriptions.
The App now offers 6 ways to enter Hieroglyphs for translation:
• Graphically from Gardiner groupings, or in Beginner Mode, plus Manley’s Groupings by shape
– A unique feature allows finding glyphs sorted by their frequency of use!
• Direct keyboard text entry of Gardiner codes (i.e., A1, D21, Aa2)
• Typing in phonetic shortcuts as defined by the MdC (i.e., Htp, nTr, r, etc.)
• By transliteration symbol from the Phonetic shortcuts table
• Searching for keywords in a glyph’s description or determinative words
Text entries of Gardiner Codes and MdC can now be edited with a cursor and finger swiping, just like other text editing apps! Very quick and convenient!
Egyptians wrote Right to Left, Left to Right, and Top to Bottom. The App allows you to enter Left to Right, and then view the Glyphs in reverse direction if you wish.
Hieroglyph Pro is the first and only mobile App to introduce Hieratic (a style of cursive, handwritten Egyptian) glyphs, and how they evolved over the centuries.
Hieroglyphics Pro is a modern iOS 16 App, back compatible back to iOS 14, Dark Mode and all. It contains help files and links to both on-line references and to printed books for advanced study.
When you have found the translation your were seeking, with a tap it is copied on to the clipboard and can be pasted into another App, an Email, message, etc.
Hieroglyph Pro is a one-time purchase! No ads! No subscriptions!
Hieroglyphics Pro has been developed and evolved in consultation with professional Egyptologists.
