Alphabetic Transcription

Symbols to Letter Conversion






Answers to Questions (FAQ)

How to transcribe a message into letters?

Identify the distinct characters in the text, and associate a letter of the alphabet from A to Z with each character taking care not to associate the same letter several times with a symbol and not to associate several symbols with the same letter.

Example: &%##& will be transcribed into ABCCA

If there are more than 26 distinct characters, possibly use the 10 digits to obtain up to 36 characters, and if there are more than 36 characters, it is still possible to go up to 62 by distinguishing between upper and lower case.

Why transcribe a message in letters?

The transcription of the messages in letters of the Latin alphabet makes it possible to preserve the properties of the frequencies of the characters of the message in order to use more easily the tools of cryptanalysis (on dCode among others) as the mono-alphabetical substitution.

It is possible that the original message is a homophonic substitution (uses several symbols for a single letter), even in this case transcription can help. This was the case for the deciphering of famous messages like that of the zodiac killer.
