Hymmnoserver is a fan-translated version of the Japanese-language HYMMNOSERVER.

The English-language version is a blind reimplementation using Python, PHP, and MySQL, running on Apache.


The purpose of this project is to make the world of GUST and Banpresto‘s Ar tonelico series more accessible to its English-speaking fanbase.

The English Hymmnoserver’s origin, its primary live implementation, may be accessed at http://hymmnoserver.uguu.ca/, with its primary mirror at http://hamsterx.homelinux.org/hymmnoserver/. Go on and check it out!

Maturity and scope

HYMMNOSERVER currently offers an extensive index of words in the Hymmnos language, in both the standard and Pastalia dialect-families, with methods to search in Hymmnos, English, or phonetic Japanese (kana). It is usable as a tool to assist in translating entire phrases from Hymmnos into English, by streamlining the lookup process, providing additional information on demand, and offering a reasonably robust syntax-processing validator and structure-introspector:

Additionally, it provides comprehensive documentation of the language’s history and a detailed introduction to the basic premise behind how sentences are written and read.

Project information

Hymmnoserver’s source is hosted on Google Code, http://code.google.com/p/hymmnoserver/, which is where you should go if you want to report a problem, contribute to development, translate it into your language, or set up a mirror of your own.
