An Al Bhed Translator for Linux
gBhed and abtranslate are two programs for translating the Al Bhed language found in Final Fantasy X and X-2. Abtranslate is a command line tool and gBhed is a GTK frontend for it.
Al Bhed is technically a cipher but it is generaly referred to as a language. The rules of the Al Bhed language are debatable, but generally all proper nouns are not translated, but most expressions (such as 'yeaaaa!') are translated. How to speak Al Bhed is even more conterversial as the games are inconsistent. Nonetheless, gBhed provides a phonetic translation. Note this is not set in stone, but rather a guideline to assist in speaking Al Bhed.
gBhed is not affiliated with Square Enix.
gBhed and abtranslate are bundled in the same package and installed onto your system together. They are compiled in the traditional way:
$ make install
Please refer to the INSTALL file for more in depth instructions.
gBhed should install on any flavour of unix (such as Linux, BSD, Mac OS X) with GTK+2 (and the GTK+2 devel files) installed.
