It looks cool. One question though, How did you make them? I hope you didn't make them up.

In 'The Fifth Race', Daniel translated it to mean "Ancients".

Wow, you can read that???

That's pretty impressive! I'll have to try those fonts.

Any idea who made them?

They have been the same since TPTB created the language, it's most likely a mistake they made.

sorry about the late post, but the F and U have been changed so they are unique.

also if your even more into Stargate and the Alterans like I am, I have started a project making the Ancient language complete.
the link is here (my web site) http://www.alteran.741.com
if you have any ideas for words please email me.

also the font and chart are on the site

That is quite interesting and a lot of work was probably invested in it, yet I have a few queries:

1. About the words, did we actually hear all those Ancient words? Or were they invented? Or they are actually Latin words? Like for instance, the word "F**k" I see over there? We know that they spoke "almost" Latin. Remember that Latin is a derivate of Ancient, not Ancient itself. So, words may have changed between periods.

2. About the alphabet. I know it's really cool to have an Ancient font. But IMO, and only IMO, it wrecks all the fun in it to use letters different than those present in the show.

Or in other words: the original is always the best. 1.gif

1. No not nearly all of those words are from the show but you can probably spot the ones that are, they ARE infact modified Latin.
2. In the show i do not believe we know all of the letters and are mostly guessed, I made it so it is actually a usable text in everyday life (well my life anyway)

When I do get close to finishing this language I am sending it to TPTB and also asking them to send me the ancient font they use in the show.

Thank you for the interest.

Wow, that's pretty smart. Kind of blows my mind actually, lol.
I don't think I'd have a use for them, but they're pretty cool. I wish this font existed when I was still at the secret-code-making age.
