Stray Alphabet Guide

Welcome to our Stray Alphabet guide. A decoded list of Stray’s letters, containing their Latin alphabet translations.

Stray Alphabet Guide

Stray uses a unique letter system, or alphabet, but each symbol corresponds to a letter of the Latin alphabet. This is why in this guide we will show you all the equivalences so that you can decipher the most complicated texts of the BlueTwelve Studio and Annapurna Interactive game.


Stray’s alphabet is what I’d like to call a “Latin substitution.” This means that each letter in Stray’s alphabet can be translated directly to a Latin alphabet equivalent.

By scouring through a lot of in-game text, I have recorded most of the letters used in Stray, including some interesting variants (If you see multiple symbols above a letter, it means that letter can be represented by any of those symbols).

A quick side-note is that not all in-game text is actually translatable. Most signs are, but filler pieces of paper usually amount to total gibberish.

Some notes on the equivalences of the alphabet that we have shown you in the previous section

  • If there is more than one symbol above a letter of the Latin alphabet, it means that the same letter is represented by several different symbols.
  • We are not 100% sure of the symbol that corresponds to the letter Q
  • We have not yet deciphered the symbols that correspond to the letters X and Z
  • It is possible that there are more symbols that correspond to some letter of the Latin alphabet
