I'm trying to translate the Fez alphabet/symbols, numbers included.

Could somebody post the deciphered alphabet and numbers please?

I would recommend sorting like symbols together, for me at least it has made the process a lot quicker. – aaa Apr 14 '12 at 18:49

Here is my version of the Alphabet / Numbers / Inputs translation :

Great work! Now if only I knew what LT, RT and A mean for PC... – Zommuter May 18 '13 at 18:59
LT and RT are rotate, and A is jump. – Cristián Romo May 19 '13 at 16:29
Is there a place in the game that helps you understand the code? Or is it supposed to be cracked just by looking at the symbols that appear on walls and objects? – lolmaus - Andrey Mikhaylov Jul 18 '13 at 20:44
So I'm confused about these codes. Does the game actually lead to realize/learn these codes somewhere? Or is this actually like, "Oh I think I see a pattern". And then you pull out a notebook and start fiddling around? – Jason D Sep 14 '13 at 0:25

Note that the e and z as well as k/q and x are not the same as this image seems to imply. See the image from the other answer to see the difference. – GoodEnough Apr 17 '12 at 14:40
I merged them since they were close enough to be confused. There's only one puzzle where the E/Z difference could even matter. – Wolf Apr 17 '12 at 17:25
You're making me doubt of what I saw in the game. I'll have to verify. Hmm... But I'm sure of my version. K and Q use the same symbol since it sounds the same, and for U and V, it refers to the roman letters. V in always used instead of U, we juste have to differentiate it by reading the word. For example, "house" would be written "HOVSE" with the roman letters. Some time ago... ^^; – Gimlao Apr 17 '12 at 22:04
