'Official' Irken Alphabet by ingyaningya 'Official' Irken Alphabet by ingyaningya
Some of us know it, and some of us don't. But the truth is, the Irken font that is on the web is not true Irken. I don't know how that one started. On the Invader Zim DVDs, it comes with Irken subtitles, which is the official Irken, but it's nowhere on the web. So, I decoded the subtitles on the DVD (after many hours and lots of episodes) and came up with these letters. Letters V-Z do not exist. Which, ironically, you can't spell "Zim" without a "Z", but oh well, it's official. So I made an Official Irken Font and made this conversion table.
If you want the font I made, here it is: [link]

It's wrong. I just tried to translate some screenshots I collected, and it's missing symbols.

they are all wrong they don't have any curves and even if they did they would still be wrong because Johnen Vasques made the irken alphabet and I don't think he would make it so he could not spell his last name because if he made it like that then wouldn't spell Vas-ques it would sell as-ques and I really think that he would not like that

I don't know if the other image I pulled up was the one from the font or not... but they're calling it the "simplified" irken font. Weird no?

I always thought that was weird too. After about an episode or two watching the subtitles you can start to read it... but seeing "im" every time they say Zim, Him, or any other "im" words that might exist... it gets weird. Not to mention that the subtitles in the first episode fell out of time before too long in the episode. "You should have tried harder!"

Maby the reason why u don't have v-z is 'cause they might b pronounced as different letters
Ex.) A & a

Sooo cool... had a feeling the other font wasn't real irken...

How come there isn't any Zs? I bet those letters do exist... xD

In the meantime, I'll just use the false irken font's "V-Z" and these for "A-U"! Thanks so much!

From what I heard, when they made Invader Zim, they didn't even officially make an alphabet for it. They just put random symbols whenever it came up in the show.
The font was created, I guess, for the fans because they wanted one or something, I suppose. So, yeah.

If you decoded this from the subtitles and they say Zim's name a lot in the show, how is it that there is no "Z"?

oh yeah and hte irken equivalent of Z is S. So really when you translate Irken, all the S's written in irken become Z's. That's just what I've heard. I think it might vary.
