    I've made a small application using Cocoa Bindings and I am hosting it to my site. It's an alBhed-English Translator. It does exactly what the name implies (and vise-versa).

    I am hosting it to my site (see my signature) and the direct download link is here

    I made this program for a friend, but then I thought this would prove useful to anyone playing FFX and can't use a translator on a PC. I have made many more applications, just thought I should mention only the one that would appeal in the eyes of this forum's users.

    Tell me what you think (but, be gentle :) )...

    Just googled it. It's "al Bhed" and from what I can tell it's some "race" from that Final Fantasy game.

    Heh, yeah, the Al Bhed is a group (better word?) of people in FF X. You begin the game not being able to understand anything they say, but as you find books throughout the game you eventually are able to translate it. There's nothing complicated about it, as it's just a letter-for-letter remapping of words. For example, w in English maps to f in AlBhed and e in English maps to a in AlBhed, so we in English is fa in AlBhed (I'm just taking this from the OP's example...I don't actually have it memorized, lol).

    Al Bhed are a race in Final Fantasy X and later games. A friend asked me to make a translator of their language so that he can read what the AlBhed say without having to memorize the alphabet or search for every dictionary inside the game.
