The user will have to use the dialog forms functionality on the right side to apply the above steps. Let's take a quick look on how the application looks with all forms opened:



At any time should you have too much data on the image and want to filter the items you can go to the Image menu and select/deselect any display option to show/hide the elements such as glyphs, words or translations. Hiding them will not cause them to be deleted, you can show them later at any time by clicking on their menu option.

Discovering glyphs

The first thing you need to do after you added your image to the project is to start to generate glyphs.



For each word identified a credit will be charged to your account. You can see your remaining credits in your login form.


Creating translations

The final step is to actually build your desired translations. At this point this is done manually by adding the translated words to your own translation. We believe that for an acient language, such as Egyptian Hieroglyphs, any automatic translation will not be posible as composing such a translation should be an art left to the user. But GlyphViewer helps you by providing a list of words that you can use to build your translation. All that you need to do is click on the New Translation... button in 6 and a dialog form will appear to help you with this as described in Translation View.

After you are done you can see the translation appear on the image with the font and color you have chosen. You can also move it by clicking on the translation and dragging it across the image. You can also select the translation and click Edit in 7 to add different a translation in a different language or modyfing one of it or Remove to delete it.


Clicking on the translation, as seen in 10 will cause a combo box to appear on the upper right corner of the translation. You can use it to scroll through the different languages it has been translated to.

You can also link or add recognized words to the translation. When you move your mouse over the translation you will see the words and their underlying glyphs becoming highlighted.
