Egyptian hieroglyphs were the formal writing system used in Ancient Egypt. It combined logographic, syllabic and alphabetic elements, with a total of some 1,000 distinct characters.The later hieratic and demotic Egyptian scripts were derived from hieroglyphic writing. Our translator does a transliteration (phonic) of the given text and tries its best to convert to authentic looking hieroglyphics.
This translator works based on custom fonts served from the internet (@font-face). When you copy and paste unless you have the font installed locally on your system, it won't look the same. You can use the image for sharing which will look the same regardless.
