After doing up this image as a collaboration effort with *BonitaOnePrime, I decided to post something with some probable Cyberglyph definitions beyond the in canon A to Z translation so people could actually see at least my view on their definitions. I originally wrote these up on June 21, 2010. The only one I know has a canon definition is Q - Prime, the rest are extrapolated from various images of the bots and who has what glyph on them. As I get more researched, this list may shift slightly depending on what I find. In addition to the letters, I've included the numbers 0-9 from glyphs that were originally made as badges for a Transformers Movie Verse Console Game, which also included all but two of the letters as well. I also posted the in canon A to Z and 0-9 translations for the Autobot and Decepticon Cyberglyphs as well. If you use any of what I have made here, give credit where credit is due.
It should be noted that, at least from what I can figure out from canon evidence, Transformers are born with the Cyberglyphs they bear, these are not chosen and added later, but inherited and "branded" in place when their chassis forms, not unlike with human birthmarks. What glyphs are there is dictated by the lineage and personality inherent in that particular bot's Spark. Additional Cyberglyphs can be etched or painted on later like tattoos, but the bot is very unlikely to know what they mean in the case of the ones from the "Language of the Primes", while the Autobot and Decepticon Cyberglyphs will be well known to them.
If anyone wants to see what I actually started with to make these files, have a look at the following links below:

Im always looking for this so i can wright a letter 2 some of my friends thx. :3
I take it this is from the "Movie Verse" considering some of the terms you used?
Nice job! ^_^
Nice job! ^_^
Yes it is. Movie verse all the way. **smiles** The other set is from G1.
this is awesome! though it'd be a very time consuming project attempting to actually write something using these glyphs... they look very complicated and detailed
**chuckles** You might think so, but really it's no more complicated than any other alpha numeric writing system. Once you get used to it, it's pretty easy to do.
that might take a while though it'd be interesting to see what other people would think were I to start writing notes using these
WOW you are..are....a Dedicated fan. I am nothing like you. Such patience, such class, such knowledge. I thought I was the most deicated fan in my country. Your something else.
**chuckles** Thank you. I've been a Transformers fan since 1984 and I don't let anyone tell me it's wrong or childish. Transformers is more than just a children's cartoon and a bunch of toys, much more.
I hear you loud and clear. TF has been my no. 1 inspiration. Robots who think and feel like us humans, Cybertron being like earth on technological and they can elegantly transform into anything that matches their character and mass. I asked my older cousin to make a copy of the Autobot symbol after seeing the first movie on DVD when the original movie was out.
Who's your favourite character?
Even thought everyone has unique strenghts characters, paint jobs, personalities and alternative modes in any series from G1 onward, I like Optimus Prime the best.
Where did the glyphs originally come from? Did you make them up or are they from the movies?
They're official. They came out of an activity book and I cross referenced them to the ones actually used in the movie, they're the same ones.
Oh, you're very welcome.
Again, totally love you for posting this ^^
Wow, what a lot of definitions!
Yeah, the only part that's actually canon are the letters and the definition for Q. The rest I came up with. This is going to be revised soon, however, with a separate set of glyphs for numbers.
May I use this on a quilt I'm making in honor of an author?
Yes you may. Thank you for asking me.
That it is.
It seems to be a language too complicated for everyday use, though. No wonder it's a lost language
A bit, yeah, though it evolved into the two dialects shown on the other page. **smiles**
Oh, Lord above, you've just made my day for inspiration!
