One of my friends gave me a phrase in a 'secret language' to try and solve. This is very urgent as if I solve it, I get a rather great reward. Here is the phrase:

Hu, E fuh'd. E tu hud fecr du dymg du oui. Ev oui lyh nayt drec, cruja uvv. Ev oui lyh'd, drah cruja uvv. Tuh'd cbayg du sa.

The decrypted message is:

No, I won't. I do not wish to talk to you. If you can read this, shove off. If you can't, then shove off. Don't speak to me.

The cipher is:

A simple substitution, where every letter of the plaintext is mapped to another letter. Many websites exist to solve these types of simple ciphers. Example: http://quipqiup.com/

    $\begingroup$ @AustinPuckett: If this is the solution (and I believe it is), the reward might not be so great after all, I'm afraid. $\endgroup$ – BmyGuest Dec 16 '14 at 11:53

  • $\begingroup$ @warspyking Is it: I am thin ? Only one that made sense from the list using the site, other then I am ship but that would be just weird. $\endgroup$ – Lyrion Dec 16 '14 at 13:52

    $\begingroup$ @warspyking Ah, if I added the clue r=e then, he could find it at spot 47. But to be fair, there is only one matching letter and that was the o. I'm guessing if the sentence is alot longer then the site will probably find it. $\endgroup$ – Lyrion Dec 16 '14 at 14:53

I know this is an old question but I wanted to add something to this for those that are interested!

That is an actual made up language, it is Al Bhed from the game Final Fantasy 10, the oui gives it away, as that's a fairly common word spoken in the game.

I checked and confirmed the same answer as above using an Al Bhed translator. Kinda neat.
