Cartouche

Cartouche


Create a cartouche of Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs.

Type your name (or any text, using the Latin alphabet) and see it rendered as hieroglyphs. You can flip between left-to-right or right-to-left text (the glyphs always face the direction you read from), and you can flip between rows or columns of hieroglyphs - just use the buttons in the Action Bar at the top of the screen.

If you want a cartouche drawn around hieroglyphs, put parentheses around the parts that should be contained. For example, type '(Andre) the Giant' or '(Bonnie) and (Clyde)'.

Many one-letter and two-letter hieroglyphs are used, along with a small number of three-consonant hieroglyphs, some god names (Thoth, Anubis, Re, Heh), as well as a number of (English) phonetic simplifications.

You can save the cartouches (Menu->Save) to the Cartouches folder or share them to other applications (Menu->Share).

Ad supported.

Hieroglyphs aren't accurate. The Hierglyphs aren't accurate (although aren't completely wrong by any stretch) and there's no way to type in Hieroglyphs instead of the Latin Alphabet. It's good if you just want something to look Egyptian and be roughly correct though. I felt I may have rated it a bit harsh earlier.
