    My headcanon is that they were speaking Cybertronian, but it was english in our ears.
    Cybertron opening - They were speaking Cybertronian.
    Cliffjumper Interrogation - All were Speaking Cybertronian.
    Whenever Shatter and Dropkick were speaking amongst themselves and not to any humans - They were speaking Cybertronian.

    I actually do, just because I found the early, heavily-mechanical robot talk really cool. Not just garbled gibberish, but actual modulated electronic noises. It was the perfect blend of robotic and alien.

    Same with me. It's kind of like Star Wars. You know they're not really speaking English, but it's "translated", essentially.

    I think Cybertronian language has it's place. I like hearing it pop up here or there. But I'm glad something like the Cybertron scene wasn't done in the Cybertronian language with subtitles. Scenes like that should be focused on getting invested in the adventure, and not overly focused on how technical stuff like language works.

    But they talked about bringing the Decepticon army to Earth in front of Dr. Powell, which is what prompted him to warn Burns before Dropkick killed him. It could have been a slip up on their part but it doesn't seem likely.

    Also, Charlie understood Optimus' message when she accidentally activated it in the forest.

    I'd like to see it return. Preferrably with subtitles this time around.

    Absolutely. Everytime I read the comics I can't help but wonder what they're saying actually sounds like. I'm a sucker when it comes to hearing alien languages.

    They were speaking Cybertronian. In the Knightverse, Cybertronian sounds almost exactly like English.

    Just because some people don’t like it when all the “characters” only speak in lines of gargled noise doesn’t mean that they can’t ever be shown to have their own language. It kinda breaks my immersion when an Autobot who arrived freshly to Earth for the first time speaks perfect American English.

    If they introduce an actual Cybertronian language and if they ever make some kind of Cybertron prequel, they are confined to using that language the entire movie. Maybe some of you may not mind, but I personally enjoy hearing Soundwave saying "Ravage eject" or Prime saying "Autobots, roll out" and the impact wouldn't be the same as hearing how they've always said it. Also, the burden of creating a unique language to last an entire film is something I rather not have the production team waste time on.

    I doubt many people are asking for the Transformers to always speak Cybertronian on screen whenever the would be realistically speaking it in the situation. It’s just that in scenes where they are coming into contact for the first time with humans, and there is no reason for them to know how to speak English (e.g. Bumblebee’s arrival to Earth in 1987, years before he could have learned Earth’s languages through the World Wide Web), or scenes where they are in the same scene as humans but just don’t care to speak to them, or even when they are alone but are just reciting a short Cybertronian phrase or quote or whatever, like Prime’s cool little ditty when he pulled the sword out of the prison ship in Age of Extinction.

    I don’t want Decepticons (or Autobots, too) to only speak in silly gibberish and not be treated as real characters. They should be given real lines. However, I feel like it is important to acknowledge they would have their own language that is not the same as anything on Earth.

    I'd prefer them to speak English, mainly because I'm just tired of the Decepticons being growling monsters who barely get any real lines. Not that Bumblebee was guilty of this, but still.

    It make sense for any alien race to have their unique language.

    Well that's just nostalgia right there.
