Home Page Database Editor Dictionary Signlist Downloads About

The SignWriter database project is a collection of Ancient Egyptian texts in a simplified MdC format that allows them to be quickly parsed, searched, and cross-referenced. This is not an online database but rather an application for download that can be run from your local computer. This method means that many features can be implemented that would be too difficult or just run too slow if performed online.

This is currently the most immature of the three SignWriter projects as the editor needed to be created first. The first set of texts are now being transcribed and as soon as they are ready the initial alpha version of the database application will be released.
