The first documented translation: the Rosetta Stone

– Ancient Egyptians beat us to it!

The history of translation is fascinating and intriguing, dating back to the earliest forms of human communication.

The first piece of documented translation can be traced to Ancient Egypt: the one and only Rosetta Stone 🪨. This stone slab has a message etched into it in three languages and scripts: Ancient Greek, Egyptian hieroglyphics, and Egyptian demotic (a more basic “letter writing” – yes, we had to look that up, too!).

The Rosetta Stone proved to be an invaluable resource in deciphering hieroglyphics, with Ancient Greek serving as a crucial starting point. It played a key role in unraveling the mysteries of Ancient Egypt.
