A book to translate the ancient gnome language into English.

The Translation book, or Gnome-English Translation Dictionary, is part of The Grand Tree quest. It helps you translate the speech of Hazelmere who only speaks in the Gnomic tongue, and helps solve a puzzle with sticks. During The Eyes of Glouphrie however, you don't need the book to talk to Hazelmere.

After doing the quest, you can find the book on the Bookcase in your Player-owned house.
