Maine Craft It is a digital sandbox created by Mojang Studios and developer Markus “Notch” Persson. In the game, you are free to explore the seemingly limitless frontiers and create anything your heart desires – as long as you can craft it using the different 3D blocks you find in the world.
In Minecraft, just like its name, you are free to explore the world while collecting and mining raw materials. You can also craft tools and items or go ahead and build huge castles and fortresses.
Besides mining and building, you also have the option to fight NPCs (non-player characters) or even defend them against other players.
Depending on your preference, you can start from scratch and embark on the journey to digital millions – aka Survival Mode – or you can skip the queue, inherit unlimited resources and even fly – aka Creative mode.
On top of all these options, you can even create your own gameplay mechanics, including custom items and assets.
Talk about a sweet deal!
However, there is one part of Minecraft that has players scratching their heads – the language of the Minecraft magic table.
Do you want to know the secrets behind the charming table? Of course you do!
Let’s dive in.
What is the language of the Minecraft charm table?
If you are a regular Minecraft player, you will know that there are a lot of secrets that you can stumble upon during the game. Unless you’ve googled for them of course.
Don’t worry, though. Your secret is safe with us! We know how hard it can be to find some of these secrets, so we don’t blame you.
Having said that, the magic table language in Minecraft has been a puzzle for many players. But that’s all about to change.
The language shown on the magic table is called the Standard Galactic Alphabet – no, it’s not a random mixture of mismatched symbols from English. This alphabet isn’t unique to Minecraft either. It was developed for the Commander Keen video game series.
The idea behind the Standard Galactic Alphabet was – if you haven’t already guessed – to create a language that represents the different languages that exist in our galaxy. The SG alphabet represents the exotic languages in games and adds a touch of magic and interest to any text.
More interesting than using English, isn’t it?
Now for the part you’ve all been waiting for…
Let’s learn how to read magic table language in Minecraft.
How to read magic table language in Minecraft
No, you don’t have to learn a new language to read the Standard Galactic alphabet. All you have to do is replace the relevant letter of the Latin alphabet to get a readable word.
To keep the guesswork to a minimum, one Reddit user put together a very useful alternative chart for translating anything you need.

However, being able to read these subtitles doesn’t make them particularly useful – unless you’re looking for some light fun. There is no actual use for these translations because they end up generating random words, mostly in English.
Another Reddit user NyoraCat posted a lengthy review of all possible Minecraft translations.
This is what they found:

You see, while there are substitutions that make actual words, it’s a completely random combination. Ashley Claudino in player It is believed that some non-English words are nods to creatures that are not from our world. For example, Cthulhu from the novels by H.P. Lovecraft and Klaatu, the alien from The Day The Earth Stood Still.
However, this does not mean that you cannot use the standard galactic alphabet for your own benefit. Now that you are familiar with the Latin script alternatives to the language, you can create fun messages within the game or even in the real world.
