    Default Volvo Pirate Map Translations

    There is some chinese - symbols - moons phases - etc.
    Give us your interpretation. Anything you have thought of!

    Can anyone post some translations here?

    Please describe specifically what you are translating. And if you can post a pic with the translations inserted. Or I will try my best once we get some posts.

    If we can do this now - it may help us with future challenges.

    Some of these numbers may be wrong. I couldn't make out some of the characters, so I put my best guess.

    The languages for the number sequences above are:

    5584: Brahmi, Arabic, Devanagari, Simplified Chinese
    2972: Latin, Brahmi, Thai, Devanagari
    3602: Devanagari, Latin(or Brahmi?), any, Arabic
    0459: any, Brahmi, Thai, Simplified Chinese

    Note that 2972 could be 2772, but I think that 9 fits better than 7.
