So I did not quite release the new version of the website by the end of May, but I have continued the work.
Two important changes are coming to the transcription feature and the glossary.
Transcription is completely overhauled with improved functionality to preview transcriptions and to experiment with different modes. We will continue to use Glaemscribe as the underlying transcription library.
Glossary changes are henceforth only going through the contribution review process. This includes contributions by our administrators. That way, we maintain full attribution and audit trails of changes in the dictionary.
I finished these parts last night, and will proceed to overhaul the profile page. Once that is done, only small tweaks remain, as I have decided to release the website without sentence contribution support. I will add that functionality later, as it will require a lot of work to get done well.
Regarding sources, I will import words from the latest version of Eldamo after the website updates are done. It is coming!
Thank you for your continued support.
Trying to translate two Silmarillion phrases into Sindarin - having a tough time and would appreciate any help.
HELP QUICKLY PLEASE!!!
Thanks Elaran! It is quite impressive how swiftly you can translate almost any English sentence into Sindarin!
Addi, please consider naming requests differently in the future. Pointing out the urgency in the subject is not always the best way to get attention. 😉 I hope you were able to use the sentence in school as it is always great to spread awareness about Tolkien's languages!
Adding pronunciation to dictionary
Hi Lenora and welcome to Parf Edhellen!
This is a great suggestion, and there are actually a field already available for details about pronunciation. We have not enabled it though as the job of updating the dictionary would be enormous.
So, I recommend the appendix in the Lord of the Rings. It has a pronunciation guide you can read!
Profile editing help.
I have removed your avatar.
This is currently not something we support, but it is a great idea for future functionality.
However, our current priority is completing the next version of Parf Edhellen. Once that work is acheived, I will be able to look at this ask.
Profile editing help.
This is actually a feature that does not currently exist. However, you can replace your avatar by uploading a different one. If you want to use the anonymous avatar, I can manually delete your avatar for you.
I will add this feature to the next version of Parf Edhellen.

Updated the tengwar to match Tolkien's letter.
