... that is creepy.

O.K, anyone who would take Tau that far is frighteningly geeky, and anyone who uses spelling and grammar like that is frighteningly stupid (no offense).

As for a website, I'm pretty sure you can search the forums for a similar thread to this one, and there is a website that shows as much tau as there is so far (I've been there)

Do a search on Google for "Tau Font"... you can download the font and do direct translations....

Go on the uk games workshop website and look in tau and there should be a tau font. I should know cause I downloaded it off that site.

For typing stuff in Tau, you can download the Tau font off the GW website.

For words and translations, see these two pages on the main website (they have their respective threads here, with the same title - check the stickied topics here)

The reason why is for me to have a proper name for my commander and army. Thank you all though Now all I need is "distant" and "explorer/explore" or "to find"

Default Re: Can any one translate english to Tau?

anyway, there are two different things, you can write in english with Tau letters, or you can write in Tau. Not the same.
The second is harder because the english-tau dictionary is very basic, we don't have verbs and other basic stuff, just words.

Adding to the links posted, this one can be os use:

Good luck.

I believe Explorer is Gal'leath... yep, the cygnus site has that.

For distant... well, Kai is great/big, R'myr is "longknife", and Shovah is "farsighted". Maybe you could rip apart R'myr for long, or Shovah for far, or just use Kai.
