    So with all the different online games and tie-in sites set up for ROTF. They all involve the cybertronian alphabet at least in some way. It also seems to be a important aspect/plot point of the movie, given the amount of symbols shown throughout the trailers.

    So is there a compiled translation from the English alphabet to Cybertronian?

    Does anyone have it? If not, is there anyone who wants to try and decipher these symbols.

    Hey cool, thanks. So is there a numerical equivalent or do they just use 1's and 0's?

    Edit: Sorry I see it now.

    The numbers are above the letters section, about midway in the article, lined vertical on the right.

    So are these the same markings that apply to the ROTF movie languages also or just the Battle for the Allpark game?

    Has anyone translated anything from the movie yet?

    How nice of the Cybertronians to make BOTH of their alphabets perfectly correlate to the English alphabel.

    Zombie thread, I know, but I found another one, apparently created just for a ROTF kids activity book because it doesn't look like the Cybertronian language/symbols created for the Bayverse movies. But like I'm an expert on the subject anyway...

    So why would the two factions have their own language and not share a single TF language?

    Good question. And why do humans have dozens of different languages, we're all the same species right? Oh, right, different races. Well then why do the Chinese have seperate versions of their own languages???

    I wouldn't have thought of the two factions as being different races.
    But then again, Consumer Goods versus Military Hardware.

    It might not be language so much as dialect. Cajuns speak some sort of butchered amalgamation of English and French with a thick southern accent. People in Quebec live in Canada but speak French with a weird accent. Despite not being a different race from any other Canadians and only living a few miles away.

    Well maybe different languages are used so the other faction doesn't know what they on about. Until a punch/counterpunch character comes around.

    I really wish there a way to type the cybertronian letters. Does anybody know a place where I can do so?

    Not possible. Everyone would be required to have fonts installed for the Cybertronian letters to be displayed correctly. But you can download the free truetype fonts "Ancient Autobot" and "Decepticon Graffiti", install them on your system and then you can even use MSPaint on Windows to write something in that letters and save it as an image that you can upload on any image hoster and then link to your signature.
