UAT Instructor Creates Cuneiform and Hieroglyphic Translator

"Joe McCormack has completed work on a web-based application that translates English words into cuneiform script from the Assyrian, Babylonian, Sumerian and the hieroglyphic script of Egyptian."

"The translator works by converting cuneiform and hieroglyphs, both used in the earliest forms of writing, into English words. For example, typing "I am a father" into the Ancient Egyptian translator yields hieroglyphs that roughly translate to "I am" and "father." The translator has been featured on several museum websites around the world and websites specializing in resources for the ancient world."

Hieroglyphic translator is online at Joe's web site virtualsecrets.com

Saw your work, my feeling is that if everyone can be more exchanges, we should be more than is now the world like this!

Joe's web site lists as his "sources" two books on Egyptology which are laughably out of date. Modern research into hieroglyphs has thrown much of this into debate. I am not sure I can trust the research of someone who is relying on texts published in 1886!
