But if one isn't familiar with a language, it's mighty hard to
correlate the letters, which do indeed look like symbols without
meaning, with their table/text entries. I'm imagining trying to look at
Hindi, Mandarin, etc. letters/"symbols" that are perfectly obvious to
people who can read those languages, but I'd have a terrible time
trying to tell many of those symbols apart.

Question: Why translate the letters at all? Effectively they are
just symbols to link up item on screen with item in text.
Nobody is "reading" them as text.
