János Kardos, also known in Slovene as Janoš Kardoš (around February 13, 1801 Újtölgyes, Kingdom of Hungary, today Noršinci, Slovenia - August 12, 1875 Őrihodos, Austria-Hungary, today Hodoš, Slovenia) was a Hungarian Slovenian Evangelic priest, teacher and writer.

He worked and lived in Hodoš, in what was then known as the "Slovenian March" (Slovenska krajina in Slovene, Vendvidék in Hungarian) and is today referred as Prekmurje. After finishing studies in theology in Vienna, he returned to his homeland and wrote and translated several ecclesiastical books and schoolbooks. Kardos was the first to translate works by Hungarian writers and poets from Hungarian into the Prekmurian language. Among others, he translated works by Sándor Petőfi, János Arany, Mór Jókai, Sándor Kisfaludy, and Mihály Vörösmarty.
