4675Newbe transcription problem
- Mar 18, 2005Hi- I'm a new member who's having some difficulty with finding out
where I'm going wrong with a sentence that(I think)I've translated
and recently tried to write in (sindarin) Tengwar. I found this group
after accidentallly posting in Elfling(I hope they're not angry at
me!), and I was hoping to find the right help here.
The sentence (in English) is:
"Until next we meet may you find peace and have sweet dreams, my
Which I have translated as closely as I could as:
"Nan lû I agovaded vîn no gerich nen hîdh a garo elei vaer guren
(An actual translation of "To the time of our meeting be you in peace
and have good dreams, my friend").
Basically I transcribed the sentence myself using a Daniel
Smith "standard mode" Sindarin chart, but I get a very diferent
result from Tengscribe.
The character string that represents what I get in Tengscribe (using
Sindarin mode, arial source font, and Tengwar Sindarin-1 in the
target pane) is as follows;
6]6 j.F ` ]shr]2l2 r`V6 6h sl7`d 6l6 9` V4 ] s]7h ljlÕ r]Ỷ7 s.7l6
The character string that represents what I *think* I should have is:
55pj`p `psr22 pr5p 5`ps7dp55p 94p`ps7`p j``pr6ps75ptjjt
I know that the Tehtar are not displayed in these examples- I think i
know the technical hitch causing that and I'm not too worried about
it, I'll add them in by hand maybe- unless it's the source of my
problem...is it?? Am I using tenscribe incorrectly? Or am i just
completely wrong in my own attempt at the transcription (let alone
I'd greatly appreciate anyone's help here.
