The Translation Device is an item acquired via the Xenobiologist's quest. The device is used to translate alien books.

To translate a book or fragment, simply place the translation device in a crafting grid with an untranslated book. This will consume the device, though more can be acquired from the Xenobiologist for more language samples.
