Zelda Hylian Translator

Zelda Hylian Translator


Translate text found the in the Legend of Zelda video games. Legend of Zelda Hylian Translator allows for bi-directional translation from English and/or Japanese to the various languages found within the Legend of Zelda video game series. The app includes support for Skyward Sword, Twilight Princess (both Gamecube and Wii versions), Link Between Worlds, as well as Ocarina of Time (also found in Majora's Mask), and Wind Waker (also found in a few other Zelda games).


APP INSTRUCTIONS - Please Read!

The translator is simple to use. Type in the text you wish to translate in the field provided, select the game's Hylian that you wish for the text to be translated to, and press "Translate!". For the two games listed with "(JP)" (Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker), you can either use your android keyboard to enter native Japanese, or simply enter text in English and let the app translate the text automatically to Japanese behind the scenes and then to the correct Hylian.

To access the Hylian to English/Japanese mode, simply press your menu key, and select it from the menu provided. You will be presented with a similar view as before. A dropdown for the game, a text box, but instead of a translation button, you will see a customized Hylian keyboard and a Japanese to English (and vice versa) translation button.

In this mode, the keyboard will switch to whichever game's Hylian you have selected. Then you simply enter the symbols you see inside the game (or anywhere else you might find Hylian text!) and the translation will appear in the text box above. For the two games labeled "(JP)" (Wind Waker and Ocarina of Time), the translation will initially appear as Japanese. Simply press "JPN-ENG" to get a generated translation from Japanese to English.

*Note that the English-Japanese (and vice versa) translation may not be accurate and for the best results it is advised to use Japanese with the games listed with "JP" and English for the ones without. However, for convenience, automatic translation has been added to the app.

*When translating from the Wind Waker Hylian, some symbols will include two lines or a small square above the symbol. Keys for these were not included. Instead, two buttons with those markings appear at the right side of the keyboard (between the clear and backspace buttons). Press the one you see after pressing the related symbol itself.

To return to the original English/Japanese to Hylian mode, simply press the menu key once again, and select it from the menu that appears.

A quick fix First of all, great app. I've been trying to learn Hylian for a while and having this is really handy. Unfortunately, there is one small problem with the translations. The problem stems from the fact that in Hylian there are special rules that give letters double sound meanings. For example, when translating the word symbols that mean Deku Seeds it comes up "Teku Seeds". This is because t represents both /t/ and /d/ sounds. Plug in these special rules and a logic function and your golden. :)
