Just google the Mando'a alphabet.  It's the same deal as aurebesh, just switch the letters. 

I have the initials of friends and family that have passed on the back of my buy'ce

If you want actual Mandalorian words instead of transliterating you can check here:  http://mandoa.org/

In particular, you might find use for some of these:

Ka'ra   [KAY-rah]   stars - ancient Mandalorian myth - ruling council of fallen kings
tra      [trah]      star field

adiik   [AH-deek]   child aged 3 to 13
ika      [EE-kah]      diminutive suffix written as 'ika, e.g, Ord'ika - Little Ordo
ade      [AH-day]      children, sons, daughters
ad      [ahd]      son or daughter
verd   [vaird]      soldier, warrior

To go literally, it would be "ad beh tra" but in Mandalorian, the noun and adjective are often combined with an apostraphe and they drop the "useless" words.  For example, Verd'ika is "Little Warrior".  So you might come up with Tra'ad or Tra'adiik or Kara'ad.


Or make it up, whataever... it's a made up language :P

I like Kara'ad! I'll doodle that on and see how it looks :)

I must say this looks so good, (I'm a huge fan of writing on kit too).

This is a fantastic start, I'm really digging the dark green colours!  There is a Mando'a translator you can download, and the open up any word document and change the font to Mando'a!
This one works pretty well also: https://lingojam.com/Mandoa-EnglishTranslator
