"When I wish to read the ancient Sith writings…I wear this."
―King Ommin, describing one of his Sith amulets — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

Translation talismans were magical devices created by Dark Jedi that allowed them to read and understand the language of the Sith species as though it were their native speech. King Ommin of Onderon possessed one such amulet, which he allowed the Tetan socialite Satal Keto to use. When Keto put the amulet around his neck, he was instantly able to understand the text of a stolen Sith spellbook in his possession, something he was previously unable to do.
