Found this today in case anyone wanted a good translation. The map text is so hard to read I know I liked seeing this:

Pretty cool that someone took an image I created, rehosted it, and (unless I missed it) didn't credit me.

That's a neat map of Africa you got there.

That version was actually missing a new places and had a few mistakes (still does, but I did this a few months ago). The last version I did is here: http://imgur.com/6Q7Lv.jpg and gave best guesses at a few areas that were too small to actually read. The biggest version without any words is here: http://i.imgur.com/SV3qB.jpg

Great job on deciphering the map, Tidane!

I think, however, there are a few transcripting errors due to the subtle similarities between some characters in the Eorzean alphabet. You may wish to note:

  • Mazlaya instead of Mazlava. The Sea Cucumber item confirms this.
  • The Pearl instead of Theuearl. The Eorzean 'P' and 'U' looks much alike, except 'P' does not have a flair at the top end.
  • Gyr Abania instead of Gyn Abania. I'm pretty certain the original shows an 'R'.
  • Cape Deadwind instead of Cape Ceadwind.
  • The Cieldalaes instead of The Cieldalaeh. Cieldalaes Spinach confirms this.
  • Cinderfoot River instead of Dinderfoot River. Pretty sure it makes more sense, and that looks more like a 'C'.
  • Carteneau Flats instead of Carteneav Flats.
  • Mor Dhona instead of Mor Dhol.
  • Coerthas instead of Doerthas. Many items, including the Coerthas Carrot confirm this.
  • Yafaem Saltmoor instead of Hafaem Halfmoon. I can't be sure on this one, but it certainly seems to spell that for me... Any takers?

Even with some small transcribed errors this map is awesome. Thanks for sharing, my friends enjoy being able to see the names too.

If that's all the errors, I'd be amazed. I originally transcribed it from a smaller version of the map and never went back to fix the mistakes. Most of them can be derived from the game, now, so I didn't bother.

Tidane can you add your name to the map and can I use it after that?

Since Pikko wants to use the map for something, I went back over it.

This is the only one I didn't have an alternate for. I liked the way Hafaem Halfmoon sounded, so I put it on there. I changed it to Yafaem Saltmoor (because Saltmoor makes more sense than Halfmoon).

Here's the changed version: http://imgur.com/HtFPy.jpg

I don't see your name on it. Probably should've done that somewhere in the corner.

Anyway, need to get someone working on finding the in-game map files in the DATs and replacing those with translations. That'd be a lot more useful.

Well thanks to who found it and especially thanks to you who made it.
Absolutely great to see the names actually readable.

Nah, I just thought it was funny seeing something I made a few months ago showing up now (I actually thought I had posted it, but it seems I only linked it on IRC).

Much more useful, except for the fact that it would be less-useful when only you are using it.
